UMaine Math Professor Emeritus in Globe Feature

The Boston Globe website boston.com published a feature article about the lifelong quest by University of Maine professor emeritus of mathematics Henry Pogorzelski, now 90, who has worked more than 50 years to prove the truth of a legendary mathematical hypothesis called the Goldbach Conjecture. Pogorzelski believes he has proved the conjecture, but his work is so detailed and voluminous, according to the article, that even the best mathematicians cannot understand it or are reluctant to invest the time trying to.
