    Default The Golden Ratio Award Nominations 2016

    Inspired by Golden crocoduck award and Golden Tinfoil Hat award I figured we can have our own mathematical version! So here it is!

    Golden Ratio Award

    This will be the nominations and here are the criterias:
    • Outrageous mathematical claims - This includes claims that are easily demonstrated false, claims to have proven or disproven conjectures that has been worked on for decades, claims to have an overly simple proof, claims of proofs that rely on reworking the initial definitions that makes a conjecture difficult to solve to begin with, etc.
    • Refusal to listen - Tendancy to not listen to worthwhile objections to the claims, may include hostility to any objector or constant accusation of them not understanding your work, hand waving of the objections, etc.


    Delusion of grandure and such are side issues that will come with but not relevant here. For a nomination post here and include the following data.
    Name
    Claim - With a link to it
    Justification why you believe it is sufficiently outrageous to warrent their inclusion.

    Once sufficiently many nominations are made I'll make another post where voting can occure.

    Stop being silly. We all know that gold does not emit ratio waves.

    Maybe we should rename it, Golden Incommeasurable Magntitude? :P

    My suggestion was in the other thread, the Un-Abel prize.

    But, whatever it is called, rather than simply handing it out, perhaps potential winners should be asked to make their case for why they should be singled out from the many other worthy candidates for this highly prestigious award?

    Perhaps the prize can be a plaque with this inscription.

    Let me do some more research but Gabriel has a few howlers. For starters, I think he said at one point that '1/3 does not mean 1 divided by 3'.

    That is in the 0.99~=1 thread.
    I dunno where, exactly, but which thread it is in is a start...
