Terence Tao (con Paul Erdős en la foto), junto con otros cuatro matemáticos, lograron este avance.
Tao, de un trato sencillo que contrasta con el de muchos de los matemáticos que se sienten tocados por la gracia. Que dialoga en un lenguaje accesible a todos, y que responde las preguntas que los niños le hacen al término de su conferencia (UCLA, hace unos cuatro años) y se toma fotos con nosotros. Que colabora con quien le proponga algo que valga la pena. Que comparte en blogs, en G+, etc.

Mucho que aprender.
