London: A 16-year-old Indian origin schoolboy in Germany has managed to crack puzzles that baffled the world of maths for more than 350 years, it was reported here on Saturday.
Shouryya Ray, from Dresden, has been hailed a genius after working out the problems set by Sir Isaac Newton. Ray solved two fundamental particle dynamics theories which physicists have previously been able to calculate only by using powerful computers, Daily Mail reported.
Ray came across the problems during a school trip to Dresden University, the paper said. (IANS)
