Timing Is Everything...

What if (against almost everyone's expectations) P actually equals NP???....

With fresh reports of the NSA cracking/hacking of internet encryption in the news, probably a good time for the award-winning, mathematical thriller* "Travelling Salesman" movie (about the P vs. NP problem) to be making its worldwide release... and... lo-and-behold it is!:


reviewed a bit here:  http://plus.maths.org/content/travelling-salesman-0

and interview with the director here:  http://www.pulse-project.org/node/435

* yes Virginia, there is such a thing ;-)
