Perelman declined the Vekselberg’s offer to work in Russian Silicon Valley
As I wrote earlier Vekselberg was calling Perelman in Skolkovo. Now we know the answer: the famous mathematician from St. Petersburg in his interview to Portal Life News said that he would not work in the city of science in Skolkovo. He added that he left the scientific activities in general. It was an unpleasant surprise, because in recent years Perelman is known in Russia as «the principal luminary» of Russian Science.
Recall that Perelman was able to prove the Poincar? conjecture, on which for years fought best mathematical minds of the world. For proof of Perelman was awarded two prizes — each at $ 1 million. But Gregory never took the money.
