Maths and politics

There's a superb feature in the New Yorker this week, by Sylvia Nasar and David Gruber, on all the fuss over the solution to the famous Poincaré conjecture. Grigory Perelman and Shing-Tung Yau star in this fascinating story, and even if, like me, you don't understand too much math, the sheer human drama of it is fascinating.
