Not P==NP for now..

Some time ago (January 19, 2011), Vladimir Romanov announced that he had found a polynomial time solution for the 3-SAT NP-Complete problem. As I mentioned on the first related post, if this was true it would immediately suggest that P==NP.. A nice article about what would be the implications of this equality can be found in Wikipedia.

The time for such a proof (or the opposite one, which is consider to be more probable) has not come yet. Yesterday, with a comment to his blog, Vladimir Romanov announced that there is a problem with the solution that need to be corrected:

Thank you for your attention to my work. You’d better suspend your investigations.
A shortcoming possibly exists in the filtration procedure which requires an amendment.

Best regards,
