SIAM's gonna be the witness to the ultimate test of cerebral fitness

Ken asks if someone can handicap the various Clay Millenium Problems and offer Vegas odds on which ones will be solved first.

I don't know enough to offer an answer.

However I'm inspired to quote this comment that Sam Buss of UCSD made on Wednesday:

"Everyone knows about the Clay Institute prize for proving whether or not P=NP. It is a measure of the importance of the problem that a million dollars has done absolutely nothing to increase interest in it."
