Submission + - Kazakh Professor claims solution of another Millennium Prize Problem (

An anonymous reader writes: Kazakh news site reports that Mukhtarbay Otelbaev, Director of the Eurasian Mathematical Institute of the Eurasian National University, found the solution to another Millennium Prize Problems. His paper, which is called “Existence of a strong solution of the Navier-Stokes equations" and is freely available online (in Russian), may present a solution to the fundamental partial differentials equations that describe the flow of incompressible fluids for which, until now, only a subset of specific solutions have been found. So far, only one of the seven Millennium problems was solved — the Poincaré conjecture, by Grigori Perelman in 2003. If Otelbaev solution is proven, not only it might be the first time that the U$1mi offered by the Clay Millennium Prize will find a home (Perelman refused the prize in 2010), but also engineering libraries will soon have to update their Fluid Mechanic books, and Kazakhstan will find a new reason to be remembered by the public (other than mockumentaries).
