Paul Clarke, a student of St Paul's College, Raheny, picked up the top prize at SciFest 2013 this afternoon. Paul has solved a problem related to the Travelling Salesman Problem, which has been baffling mathematics since the 1930s. His discovery has taken us a step closer to solving the Travelling Salesman Problem, also known as the Hamiltonian Cycle Problem, which has applications in business models including computer routing and networking. Professor Mark Ferguson, Director General of Science Foundation Ireland and Chief Scientific Adviser to the Government presented Paul his prize – the SciFest@SFI trophy and a trip to Los Angeles where he will represent Ireland at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) 2014.
