Which programming language is best for Mathematical simulation- Matlab or Fortran?
Relevant answer
Answer
Dear Suman Kar
I would recommend the Matlab software. It is a general software that can be used by any engineering topic, it is endowed by many tools, toolboxes and a graphical interface that help users for the modelling, simulation and even implementation of systems and algorithms.
For more precision I suggest to see the difference between Matlab and Fortan :
- Matlab is a tool (complete environment) and Fortran is a programming language.
- Matlab is a set of packages and an IDE which lets the person to write a code for his problem, run the code, get the results and post-process the results into beautiful plots and animations.
- Fortran is a high-speed programming language especially made for scientific computing and high performance applications.
Hope you find this useful !

Fermat's last theorem was finally solved by Wiles using mathematical tools that were wholly unavailable to Fermat.
Do you believe
A) That we have actually not solved Fermat's theorem the way it was supposed to be solved, and that we must still look for Fermat's original solution, still undiscovered,
or
B) That Fermat actually made a mistake, and that his 'wonderful' proof -which he did not have the necessary space to fully set forth - was in fact mistaken or flawed, and that we were obsessed for centuries with his last "theorem" when in fact he himself had not really proved it at all?

Why does the absorbance vary in a linear fashion, whereas the transmittance varies in an exponential fashion?
Can this be explained mathematically/intuitively or are these results based on experimentation?
Relevant answer
Answer
Actually, absorbance changes neither linearly with length of the lightpath nor with concentration, just in a first approximation, which becomes exact, absurd as it may sound, in the limit of vanishing absorption. The reason why transmittance decays approximately exponentially is that the decrease of intensity is proportional to the intensity itself. Why only approximately? For details see this review:

how can i prove that mathematical proof about feasible solution is found at boundary point?
also want to ask about why feasible region must be composed of a convex set. is there any mathematical proof about this?
Relevant answer
Answer
A feasible solution is any point in the feasible set, both interior points as well as boundary points can be feasible solutions, it depends on your optimization problem.
For a Linear programming problem, the feasible region is a polyhedral set, which can have extreme directions and extreme points, if the polyhedron above is a bounded set, it can have a finite number of extreme points only.
By representation theorem, for a bounded polyhedral set, any point in the set can be expressed as a convex combination of the extreme points of the set: substitute this expression in the expression for cost function as f= cT*x, cT is transpose of vector c, the cost vector. you can see that this linear form is bounded both above and below, the lower bound is fmin which is associated with the extreme point corresponding to lowest value of the objective function and upper bounded by fmax, which is associatef with that extreme point corresponding to the largest value of the objective function.
A feasible region need not always be a convex set, but optimization of convex/concave functions over convex set, is called convex programming , it is mathematically very well studied and has many interesting features associated with it.

  • Hello. I am struggling with the problem. I can measure two ratios of three independent normal random values with their means and variances (not zero): Z1=V1/V0, Z2=V2/V0, V0~N(m0,s0), V1~N(m1,s1), V2~N(m2,s2). These are measurements of the speeds of the vehicle. Now I should estimate the means and the variances of these rations. We can see it is Cauchy distribution with no mean and variance. But it has analogs in the form of location and scale. Are there mathematical relations between mean and location, variance and scale? Can we approximate Cauchy by Normal? I have heard if we limit the estimated value we can obtain the mean and variance.

Well the Cauchy distribution has all moments equal infinity. You might be interested in the attached Google search which is about robust Statisical methods but I would probably try the first ref in the second search first. Good luck if you do. David Booth

I have a problem. Measurements show the opposite of what convention assumes. It occurred in geotechnics, but could affect all material modelling branches.
I tested soil specimens. Convention interprets materials as things where deformation is created (output) and force is applied (input). So, our task is: decode how much deformation a certain loading (force) will generate.
After 6 years of testing, I noticed the convention is misleading. Reaction force behaves as a function of deformation. Not the other way round. Stiffness hysteresis loop shape, size and position stabilizes within deformation amplitudes. You can control the shape, size and position of stiffness loops - using deformation amplitude. All applied deformation values - have finite answers, unlike the "infinite displacement" paradox...
It's a big problem. All software is designed to model deformation as a function of force applied. But in reality, force (reaction) behaves as a function of deformation. It could be we are stuck in a paradigm, where deformation is modelled as a function of force. But in reality, the reaction force is a function of deformation. F=f(U) not U=f(F).
The observations (empirical evidence) pointed me to an abandoned theory from 40 years ago (strain-space plasticity, by P. J. Yoder 1980). His theory seems to be not only compatible with the observed physical properties, but also GPU - parallel computation compatible (there were no GPU units in 80's... so "parallel spring systems" in FEM caught no one's attention)
So, we have something that is both:
1. Potentially more physically correct
2. For the first time makes elasto-plastic FEM is super computer compatible.
I am stuck building robots for industrial projects at the faculty. For tests which are meant to provide "quick profit" to faculty. "fundamental" research is not funded. Tried applying for radical research EU grant... the topic is way too radical for them.
All observations were made in spare time. Evenings, weekends, at times - using life savings... I tried showing test results to renown experts. They become red in the face, angry, and say "I have not seen anything like it". After an hour of questions - they find no flaws in the testing machines. And.. Leave. Never to hear from again.
The theory of P. J. Yoder was defended in public defenses multiple times in the 80's. It seems "mathematically equivalent". As in - proven able to do "the same" as convention does. Without anyone ever testing what such "reversal of coordinate space" (strain instead of stress envelopes) would imply regarding interpretation of material properties. No one found flaws in it "mathematically". Never proves it wrong. But... Forgot, ignored and abandoned.
I tried asking industries for opinion too. Industry asks for code compatible with existing software (return of investment). And I alone can not code a full software package. Frankly, I would rather keep testing, try to prove my assumptions wrong. But the more I test, the more anomalies and paradoxes are observed, exposed and resolved on the topic..
What is the "antidote" in such situation? Tests showing convention wrong. Nobody find any mistakes. Which leads to silence and being ignored.

Fire is oxygen combining with the candle or the wood not releasing magic. The old Fire-air and dephlogistication controversy. There are so many examples. But as Fatemeh Khozaei sort of suggests... can you patent this idea etc. to make some money? Stellan Gustafsson is right that you can get the message out via youtube videos but if you want some scientific acknowledgement I would start by a preprint, presentation, or poster uploaded here and obtaining a DOI number so that technically others can cite you, or at Academia.edu, or both. A great many people are unaware of the revolution that is Researchgate. Look at us, we have an Iranian researcher, two Northern Europeans, and an American collaborating with no paperwork. (no pay either) For the moment, Researchgate has a no censor policy, and is very similar to the early days of Wikipedia when that site delivered more extensive, better quality articles, and was trusted over than paid encyclopedias. Understand search engines can not scan Researchgate, so our articles are ranked by Algorithms and compared to other scientific sites. Google and Scholar (if your paper is cited) rank the corpus (collection of documents) here on a par with Taylor and Francis, Springer, Elsevier and others. I can prove it
Query Google with these key phrases
Microbial Outsourcing
or
Plasma Water Theory
and to see how important Check out the number of results or pages
indexed by Google.
BTW The former is a preprint and the latter is only a presentation.
Then, once your paper or presentation is on line you can try to promote your idea even on Wikipedia itself.

Hello Researchers,
I was working to check the validity of a mathematical equation. In doing so I have obtained a large data set values >50,000 experimentally. As the mathematical equation gives only a single value I was wondering is there any way to compare that data set to mathematical equation. Based on that comparison I am willing to assign a constant that is when operated (+,-,x,/) to mathematical equation results in values justifying the experimental data set. The constant could be more than one as the range of the data set is quite large compared to empirically obtained values through a mathematical equation.

Currently the only proof of Fermat's Last Theorem is very complex and certainly not the proof that Fermat had in mind.
I wonder if it is possible to use a method that drastically
simplifies Wiles' theory, a theory that has received much honors from the entire mathematical community.
Relevant answer
Answer
There’s some sort of myth that Fermat had a proof. While he did have a proof for certain special cases, the approach doesn’t work for the general case. ``Simplicity" is a subjective notion, what’s simple for one person, is complicated for another. The only things that matter are, whether the proof is technically correct and what are its consequences. That’s what the proof by Wiles and Wiles-Taylor accomplishes.
This isn’t about music on period instruments, certain notiins just weren’t known in Fermat’s time.

Dear Alireza Akbari looks like your equation is a nonlinear PDE, there are tables for those:
However I could not find yours, but don't worry, I tell you a trick we use in MHD.
1. You linearized it, i.e., you solve the PDE as a function of ei(k.r - omega t)
2. You get a complex polinom, but I don't see any parameters in your equation.
3. Anyway you can try an algebraic manipulator such as math or maple and find the roots. However, I find it strange that there is not a parameter, you need it to scan the complex solution.

How can we determine the mathematical property of a high-dimensional benchmark problem?
Take, for example, the n-dimension Rosebrock equation. It is a unimodal equation with localized behaviour in 2 dimensions (We can tell this from the 2D plot). However, if the dimension is taken greater than 3, the equation shows multimodal behaviour. In short, the mathematical characteristic may change according to the dimension change. How can we determine the mathematical characteristic of an equation with different dimensions using a small number of analysis results obtained in the design space?
The n-dimensional Rosebrock equation is shared from the link below.
Relevant answer
Answer
As a method, we thought that the effect of the parameters in the high-dimensional equation on the result could be examined and the results would be decided by plotting the two-dimensional results for the two most dominant variables. But we are not sure whether it will give correct results for every equation. We will analyze the results by conducting experiments. Other than that, do you have any other suggestions?

The French mathematician Pierre de Fermat (1601-1665), conjectured that the equation
x^n +y^n =z^n has no solution in positive integers x, y and z if n is a positive integer >= 3.
He wrote in the margin of his personal copy of Brachet’s translation of Diophantus’ Arithmetica:”I have discovered a truly marvellous demonstration of this proposition that this margin is too narrow to contain”.
Many researchers believe that Fermat does not find a demonstration of his proposition but some others think there is a proof and Fermat’s claim seems right.
The search of a solution of equation x^n + y^n =z^n are splitted in two directions.
The first one is oriented to search a solution for a specific value of the exponent n and the second is more general, oriented to find a solution for any value of the exponent n.
- Babylonian (570,495 BC) studied the equation x^2+y^2=z^2 and found the solution (3,4,5).
- Arabic mathematician Al-Khazin studied the equation x^3+y^3=z^3 in the X century and his work mentioned in a philosophic book by Avicenne in the XI century.
- A defective proof of FLT was given before 972 by the Arab Alkhodjandi
- The Arab Mohamed Beha Eddin ben Alhossain (1547-1622) listed among the problems remaining unsolved from former times that to divide a cube into two cubes.(refer Image of Arabic manuscript from British Museum. Problem N4 Red color at line 8 from top).
- Fermat (1601, 1665), Euler (1707, 1783) and Dirichlet (around 1825) solved the equation for n=3, 4 and 5.
- In 1753, Leonhard Euler presented a proof for x^3+y^3=z^3
- Fermat found a proof of x^4 +y^4 =z^4 using his famous “infinite descente”. This method combines proof by contradiction and proof by backward induction.
- Dirichlet (in 1825) solved the equation x^5+y^5=z^5 .
- Sophie Germain (in 1823) generalized the result of Dirichlet for prime p if 2p+1 is prime..
Let p prime, x^p +y^p =z^p has no solution in positive integers if 2p+1 is prime.
- In XIX century E.Kummer continued the work of Gauss and innovated by using numbers of cyclotomic field and introduced the concept of “prime factor ideal”.
-Andrew Wiles, a professor at Princeton University, provided an indirect proof of Fermat’s Conjecture in two articles published in the May 1995 issue of Annals of Mathematics.
Andrew Wiles solved a high level problem in modular forms about elliptic curves and the consequence is a solution for FLT. Thanks to the results of Andrew Wiles, we know that Fermat’s Last Theorem is true.
I think he opens a space for mathematicians to search proofs for FLT comprehensible by a normal student in mathematics and may be to find new concepts or ideas. This result should imply a direct proof of FLT.
In this paper, I would like to suggest a direct proof of FLT using mathematical concepts (Parity Even or Odd of Numbers, forward and backward Induction,....) and tools of the Fermat‘s era.
This direct proof is comprehensible for a student in mathematics and lovers of mathematics.

Ablation studies is quite common in machine learning literature, especially those on neural network and deep learning. When a new architecture or method is proposed, the authors often perform an ablation study where they remove sub-components of their methods that they feel are important one at a time, and study how the performance of said method changes, to learn the actual importance of each of the sub-components.
I find this approach quite useful for research on optimization algorithms, specifically heuristical algorithms, whose properties may not be easy or even possible to prove mathematically.
However, I have only seen ablation study or the term "ablation study" (might be called something else in other fields) in machine learning research. Would it be appropriate to include in papers on mathematical optimization algorithms or other areas of research in general?

Physical insight can suggest a principle which in turn leads to mathematical modeling. Example might include Newton extending the falling of an apple to towards Earth’s center, to the Moon falling around the Earth, and Einstein’s free falling elevator compared to the effect of gravity.
But mathematics can also give a powerful clue to a physical principle. Well known examples include Planck's 1900 or so work on energy packets implying discontinuous amounts of energy, and Dirac’s prediction of the positron.
From 2005 to 2008 studying networks, I found that the mean path length successfully scaled a lexical network, and the mathematical result implied some physical principles about the distribution of energy in a network, which by a circuitous route led to the idea of the principle of dimensional capacity around 2019.
History, consistent with my own experience, suggests physical principles can imply the mathematics and vice versa.

Some, including Morris Kline, in a book dealing with uncertainty in the basis of mathematics,
indicates that eachh definition in mathematics references some other or other definitions;
but that this leads backwards to undefined terms, which must be there. Perhaps there are other problems, that whatever you are defining may not even exist.
Given the historical roots of math, it is not so clear. That math ought to be based also on other disciplines, counting, land measurement and so on.
Hence that defenitions may better hinge on a descriptive intuitive account that earn us the work of looking up every other definition made in mathematics, This is a great barrier in understanding a lot of work these days, the huge number of definitions one must absorb.
This would best guide our intuition to see if the results are logical. But the comon practice these days are far from it, strait into having to prove everything, and know everything about very narrow specialties, meaningless to most outsiders.

That is, it should be trustworthy and considered "respectable" enough to be cited in academic work.

I am a homeschooling parent who came to realize that my young children (in grades 1 and 3 this year) are into mathematics for its beauty. They are amazed at the fact that adding two whole numbers in any order yields the same result (commutativity), grouping when adding may be helpful (associativity), that for particular numbers n, x, and y, we have that n = x^2 = y^3: 1 = 1^2 = 1^3; 64 = 8^2 = 4^3, etc. They are mesmerized by the fact that 1 = 1, 3 = 1 + 2, 6 = 1 + 2 + 3, 10 = 1 + 2 + 3 + 4, ...; special sequences of numbers such as (in this case) triangular numbers (which they know as "step shapes"). They don't take for granted that 1n = n for any integer (I don't think they are ready for real numbers in general). They can see that division is akin to factoring: 12/4 = 3 because 3 and 4 are factors of 12 (though they are not too up on the vocabulary yet)... They can see informally that a - b = - (b - a): 8 - 5 = 3 implies that 5 - 8 = -3.
I hope I am fortunate enough to see them through their entire grade school through high school learning.
My concern is: why do educators/teachers and parents a debate so much about basic skills versus critical reasoning as if these things removed from context of the ACTUAL beautiful ideas in mathematics will pull school children into understanding mathematics any more than knowing words alone is enough to make a great writer? Why do we either (a) think that its all basic skills, or (b) word problems about so-called everyday stuff that are more social studies than mathematics? How about focusing on mathematics as subject like we do Language Arts? We don't reduced Language Arts to writing letters and business contracts in which grammar and syntax are important? We want children to enjoy the beauty of language; shouldn't we do the same with mathematics?

The presentation/s included the application of the corresponding math concepts/formulas/theorems, etc. involved in their projects' development. For example, Pythagorean theorem, isosceles triangle, etc. are applied in calculating their projects measurements. Hope this makes sense to my readers.

we substitute y=e^rx while solving constant coefficient linear differential equation. what is the reason behind this?. is there any proof?
Relevant answer
Answer
Let us suppose that y = e^(r·x) is a solution for a homogeneous linear differential equation with constant coefficients, i.e. for equation
(1) a·y'' + b·y' + c·y = 0 (a, b, c are real),
where r is a parameter which we have to determine.
By formal inclusion
y = e^(r·x), y' = r·e^(r·x), y'' = (r^2)·e^(r·x)
in (1)
we have:
(2) e^(r·x)(a·r^2 + b·r + c) = 0 OR a·r^2 + b·r + c = 0
what is characteristic polynomial for (1).
Because each quadratic equation have real or complex solutions, it is obvious that there exists number r, real or complex, such that y = e^(r·x) is a particular solution for equation (1).

In Mathematics, some proofs are not convincing since the assumption fails in the Proofs.
If equality is Changed to "approximately equal to" then the Proof becomes more Perfect. But Uniqueness cannot be guaranteed.
In Page number 291, Introduction to Real Analysis Fourth Edition authored by Bartle and Sherbert, the Proof of Uniqueness theorem is explained.
That Proof is not perfect.
Reason : Initially epsilon is assumed as positive and so not equal to zero. Before Conclusion of the Proof, epsilon is considered as zero and written as two limits are equal.
The equality cannot hold since epsilon is not zero. Only the possibility to write is Two limits are approximately equal.
Since Epsilon is arbitrary, never imply epsilon is zero.
I hope the authors and other mathematicians will notice this error and will change in new editions.
Relevant answer
Answer
The proof is fine.
It is based on the following fact:
If x < epsilon for every positive epsilon, then x ≤ 0.
This is easily proved by contradiction.
Suppose that x < epsilon for every positive epsilon and that x is not less or equal than 0.
Then x>0, hence for epsilon=x/2 it is epsilon>0 and epsilon<x; this contradicts the hypothesis.

It is well confirmed that the nonlinear evolution equation (NLEE) is widely used as a mathematical leading equation for describing the physical issues in many branches of physics. But it is very difficult to solve. Recently, many researchers have proposed various types of solution methods. Unfortunately, most of the solutions methods lead to additional free parameters. In my opinion, the solutions with additional free parameters of NLEEs are not useful for further verification in the laboratory. That is why my discussion topic is "What is the best solution method for nonlinear evolution equations?".

Hi,
The short answer to your question is: there isn't one that can be applied in general. There may be only "satisficing" ones, for specific nonlinear (discrete or continuous), stable or unstable, equilibrium or non-equilibrium, single or multiple structural equilibria containing dynamical equations (problems) you either formulate yourself, or come across having been formulated by others.
There are significant methodological and epistemological questions involved in your question; as well as yet unsolved (possibly unresolvable) mathematical problems.
Good luck!

Dear experts and colleagues,
Hello, all! I recently received a reviewer's comment stating that the proposed network measures of graph theoretical analyses could be correlated by mathematical definition.
So I ran the correlational analyses and global efficiency, characteristic path length, mean clustering coefficient (global measures) showed correlated to each other.
I understand that Global efficiency is inversely related to characteristic path length, but I am quite confused about how characteristic path length is inversely correlated with mean clustering coefficient, while mean clustering coefficient is positively correlated with global efficiency.
Or does my data is wrongly suggested?
Briefly explaining my study, it is a neurological study using MR images (diffusion tensor imaging) to explore the structural networks.

In classical times there was a concept of pure science that was produced entirely in the intellect.
More recently sciences were developed by testing the intellectual product with empirical data. These sciences are not regarded as being pure.
Mathematics, often regarded as pure science, has for most of history been based on postulates of geometry that could not be proven. Then came relativity and other geometries. In the past century there was considerable effort to reformulate mathematics on a firmer basis of conditional sets. Math is now regarded as being somewhat more pure than before, while producing two generations of graduating students in some countries who are not able to do simple arithmetic.
Fortunately I had some excellent teachers who explained the two systems and why they were both needed. Other teachers displayed the Gödel's incompleteness theorems.
In academic settings there seems to be a difference of opinions about whether or not math is a science, and whether or not it is pure.
Is Mathematics A Science?

Answer
Mathematics is a science built on a theoretical basis through the occurrence of a phenomenon or an experiment and taking the data of these phenomena and making them a model, an equation or a system, and then it is solved according to the theoretical foundations.

I am combining fish abundance and biomass data collected from five locations which have utilised different transect dimensions:
15 x 4 m (60 m2; from one location)
30 x 5 m (150 m2; from three locations)
50 x 4 m (200 m2; from one location)
When pooling data collected from transects of differing sizes, should you standardise your data down (to the smallest dimensions) or up (to the largest)? Or in this case, perhaps standardise according to the most commonly used dimensions (30 x 5 m/150 m2)?
To me it seems as though there would be no difference, but I was wondering if there was some sort of mathematical explanation for why one way might be preferable over the others?
Relevant answer
Answer
Hi Joseph,
Hope it's not too late to help.
Because there is a general trend of larger fish to move more, your chance of sampling larger individuals with larger transects is also higher.
If you scale down, you will be implicitly assuming that fish density wouldn't change, which may be inaccurate for very large and rare fishes, i.e., if you found 1 giant grouper on a 200m2 transect, would you really expect to find half a grouper on a 100m2 one?
Scaling up brings the same assumption of fish density not changing, but it may be more acceptable because smaller fish tend to move less and be more homogeneously distributed. You would still have bias for small and rare species, but because the contribution of these to biomass should be negligible, the problem would dissolve away.
Standardising to a mean dimension may bring both issues together, but may also mean that both of these biases are reduced.
At the end of the day, it's about what you're willing to assume about fish distributions. One way of dealing with this is rescaling your data down or to a mid-dimension by subsampling your community based on the density of specific phases/types of fish. That's what I do in this paper:
This, in essence, allows you to carry over uncertainty in density estimates to your further analyses, resulting in more 'messy' data, but in conservative estimates.
Cheers,
Renato

Hello. I want to ask how can I translate weightages of "yes" or "no" of a criterion in terms of numbers in AHP calculations?
for examples, my goal is to select most suitable construction material vendor (Alternative) according to the set criteria including "ASTM Standards", with 4 other criteria.
This criterion means "Is the material vendor giving the material according to the Construction Standard ASTM, or not?" So the answer given to this by the alternative (vendor) would be a "Yes" or a "No", but not a value.
First, I've sent a questionnaire to the experts to give me pair wise comparison weightages for one criteria vs the other. And I've got great response with consistency of 0.9. Acceptable!
But when I ask the vendors to provide their responses, they put numerical values to the first four criteria, and I find the comparison matrix for these vendors (alternatives) for each criteria using simple maths division (value of one vendor divided by second vendor). It gives me the exact zero consistency, because I've found the alternatives weightages using exact math comparison. But I get numerical values of weightages to find ranks, so it works fine for me.
But when it comes to the 5th criterion (ASTM Standards), the responses are in "Yes" or "No" terms! My question is that what numerical value should I give to a Yes and a No so that I can get their comparison by dividing with each other?
for instance, if I use Yes =1 and No = 0, the system hangs because anything divided by zero gives an infinity answer, and it doesn't proceed further.
If I want to use a scale of 1 to 9, saying Yes = 9, and No = 1, it gives me good results. But I've no reason to use 1 or 9, for it could be any numerical value say 1000 for Yes, and 1 for No.
Please suggest me a reasonable value with a citation if possible.
Thanks in advance.

Very interesting your question. The problem lies in the fact that in AHP you determine artificial values, but if you use Yes or Nor, or 1 and 0, these are not only objective values but with only two possible answers
Coincidentally, less than a week ago, another colleague put the same question, something that I had not seen in years
This is one of the 'beauties' of AHP, so elemental a method, that does not allow for modelling frequently incidents like this.
In other systems, you simply put 1 and 0 respectively

The monads Leibniz proposed are indivisible, indissoluble, and have no extension or shape, yet from them all things were made.

Hello
Can someone help me to solve this?
Because I really don't know about these problems and still can't solve it until now
But I am still curious about the solutions
Hopefully you can make all the solutions
Sincerely

Austrian-born mathematician, logician, and philosopher Kurt Gödel created in 1931 one of the most stunning intellectual achievements in history. His shocking incompleteness theorems, published when he was just 25, proved that within any axiomatic mathematical system there are propositions that cannot be proved or disproved from the axioms within the system. Such a system cannot be both complete and consistent.
The understanding of Gödel’s proof requires advanced knowledge of symbolic logic, as well as Hilbert and Peano mathematics. Hilbert’s Program was a proposal by German mathematician David Hilbert to ground all existing theories to a finite, complete set of axioms, and provide a proof that these axioms were consistent. Ultimately, the consistency of all of mathematics could be reduced to basic arithmetic. Gödel’s 1931 paper proved that Hilbert’s Program is unattainable.
The book Gödel’s Proof by Ernest Nagel and James Newman provides a readable and accessible explanation of the main ideas and broad implications of Gödel's discovery.
Mathematicians, scholars and non-specialist readers are invited to offer their interpretations of Gödel's theory.

Answer
The idea is you have to go out of the system in order to prove some results.
Like the Fermat problem needed things like Eliptic curves also, foreign to just
plain integer arithmetic.
That is if you mix up a bunch of rules, there are also unexpected side effects which might be true, but cannot be proven. Some results are random (prime numbers)
Many other problems are still open.

When I observed mathematics education in preservice teachers at my university, I found that What students learn in mathematics classes does not match what is needed in school mathematics classes. That led to my initiation to do design research, a Hypothetical Learning Trajectory that contains a sequence of learning processes related to elementary school mathematics learning. I consider starting with observations in elementary math class to identify misconceptions, then jointly reviewing issues on campus, conducting literature reviews, designing lessons to address identified problems, implementing them in class and evaluating the results. The final result is a Local Instructional Theory on Learning about Teaching Mathematics for prospective teachers to overcome misconceptions that occur in elementary mathematics classes. I need so many suggestions to do this research.

From my experience your idea has been voiced by every teacher in every subject from the beginning of teaching. In addition, myself and very teacher wants a concept close to what you describe. So much so that they have refined it and set it in place as a curriculum goal at all levels of education.
And it usually fails in real-world classrooms. Especially teaching students from 5 to 18 years old. These are people in their early stages of developing skills to learn. And by their nature never at the same levels. To me those needs come first. You can be successful as a teacher and at same time put aside the obvious theory and hopeful goals.
Like someone else here suggested, spend a few years with the children you hope to help and find out what their needs are and those of their families and community VS what you think they are. First experience helping people to learn before you decide how they should learn and how to organize the curriculum.
Mathematical skills, concepts and facts - like anything else - are easily learned. With a big "if"...if the child likes to learn and has had people help them along the way.

In 2010, Dr. Khmelnik has found the suitable method of resolving of the Navier-Stokes equations and published his results in a book. In 2021, already the sixth edition of his book was released that is attached to this question for downloading. Here it is worce to mention that the Clay Mathematics Institute has included this problem of resolving of the Navier-Stokes equations in the list of seven important millennium problems. Why the Navier-Stokes equations are very important?

Answer
I finally could check the PDF, Prof. Aleksey Anatolievich Zakharenko
Dr. Khmelnik uses a variational principle to solve the NS equation, which is very powerful indeed.
He also discusses and gives examples & a reason for turbulence.
I know that the solution of NS is a non-linear problem that involves several modes and that it depends on the source.
However, my knowledge of the foundations of NS is very limited to a few linear/non-linear problems on non-equilibrium gas dynamics& MHD solved by the method, Prof.
