P=np

Why the proof of P=NP (or P=!NP) is false? Where I will find the conclusion on the proof that show it is wrong?

As far as I know it's currently unproven. There are several web pages describing the problem and discussing the efforts to prove it.

My computer is fixed

My computer now fixed.
But what I need to write to google [the keywords] to see the best result of the problem in the proof that showing the proof is false.

How can you post a question here but not manage to Google it first?

It can often take a bit of work to find the answer you are looking for, but even if you started with the question in the OP, you will end up somewhere. Then just follow the trail.

You keep saying "the" proof is wrong. What "proof" are you referring to?

The latest new

In the latest new in Tapuz hebrew math forum, Israeli mathematicians tell that the proof was prove. Now I know that the proof have failure errors. I ask what are they?
Or to get: A site that describe it and tell why the not true.

Maybe I'm missing something. Do you have a copy of the failed proof? If so then what parts are you having problems with?

Proving that P is in NP is a colossal problem. Although a proof of such might be accomplished in our lifetime, I would take any claims of a proof with a very heavy dosage of salt. It's a mine field for sure.
