    Want to joint the ranks of Pythagoras, Tales, Euclid, Riemann, Bertrand, L'Hôpital and some other eggheads that have theorems named after them, but don't want to spend the better part of your life researching and developing a theorem of your very own (or just don't want to have anything to do with math; nasty stuff, that)?

    Well now you can. TheoryMine is a company that specializes in automated theorem proving, and their theorem testing/proving process discovers new theorems every day. So what to do with all these new theorems? Sell them. £15 will buy you your very own, perfectly valid, unique, hitherto undiscovered, mathematical theorem, complete with proof (take that, Fermat!).

    [​IMG]

    So, um, yeah. No guarantee your theorem will ever find wider use, recognition or glory, but hey, your very own theorem. Yay. [​IMG]

    I'd rather do it with a good old pad of paper, pencils and a rubber (eraser).

    I actually created (probably not the right word for this but IDC) a couple of theorems myself, but I can never think of an easy way to formulate them.

    And it's not like anyone would ever make any use of them either, except me.

    I made a formula on composing dark matter from different substances.

    Yeah, nobody ever could test it- it's a physical impossibility. I'd like it to be a theorem.

    It's kinda of like you take something already solved and labeled it with your name.

    My theorem details that if you manage to survive the gravitational stresses of being inside a black hole, you can see that it is in fact full of jelly babies.

    You do it, he needs a guinea pig.

    My theorem is that the amount of atoms used for nuclear fusion multiplied by pi to the power of the amount of neutrons is the power multiplied by the distance.
