    Hello,

    I have a question about the project, but I\'m afraid it\'s not a simple question. It also has two meanings, and I\'m curious about both.

    First... What is being done with the data from this project, in a physical sense? Is it being published in a book? Is it going into journal articles? Is it being used for someone\'s dissertation or thesis in mathematics? Who owns the data, and who holds the data?

    Second... What is being done with the data from this project, in an abstract sense? What is it being used for? What does it prove or disprove? What is its application? Does it explore an abstract problem in mathematics? Is the application purely theoretical? Can it be directly applied to one of the physical sciences, like particle physics or quantum physics? Would it have an economic use, such as in cryptography?

    If there is an English web page with this information, you can simply point me to that and I would appreciate it greatly.

    Thank you very much for your time.

        Rakarin,


        First... What is being done with the data from this project, in a physical sense? Is it being published in a book? Is it going into journal articles?

        Well, maybe...the results of the 11th dimension is being presented next week on a Hungarian conference called Networkshop. Hopefully the new algorithm capable of handling higher dimensions faster will be out of the factory soon and so we\'ll have more results soon. And for sure we\'re planning to publish articles...


        Second... What is being done with the data from this project, in an abstract sense? What is it being used for? What does it prove or disprove? What is its application? Does it explore an abstract problem in mathematics? Is the application purely theoretical? Can it be directly applied to one of the physical sciences, like particle physics or quantum physics? Would it have an economic use, such as in cryptography?

        Right now, it is more likely to be theoretical. I would say it couldn\'t be directly applied to physical sciences, but the result of the research would help to understand the mathematics of number systems in a better way, which could and will lead to better applications of math in cryptoraphy for example.
