This equation is making the rounds this week. However, it doesn't work on IE as of yet.

Google: $e^{-\frac{((x-4)^2+(y-4)^2)^2}{999}}+e^{-\frac{((x+4)^2+(y+4)^2)^2}{999}}+0.1\timese^{-((x+4)^2+(y+4)^2)^2}+0.1\timese^{-((x-4)^2+(y-4)^2)^2}$

Pierre Deligne netted the prize, one of the most prestigious in mathematics and worth about $1 million, for proving a deep conjecture about algebraic geometry which has helped to transform number theory and related fields.
