# Mathematical problems with impact on physics [closed]

Are there any purely mathematical, unsolved questions, whose resolution would have (great, or concrete) impact on physics? Eg. it could almost surely tell us whether particle x exist or not, assuming so and so well-accepted observational facts?

As it currently stands, this question is not a good fit for our Q&A format. We expect answers to be supported by facts, references, or expertise, but this question will likely solicit debate, arguments, polling, or extended discussion. If you feel that this question can be improved and possibly reopened, visit the help center for guidance.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

This is one of those list questions that is a bad fit for the SE format, so I'm closing it accordingly. If anyone would like to argue for keeping it open, feel free to open a discussion on Physics Meta. – David Z Jun 25 '12 at 3:24
The mathematicians have not yet made rigorous the modern foundations of physics, the path integral and quantum operator algebras, so there is no such result that can be formulated in mathematical language yet. But I agree with David's close. – Ron Maimon Jun 25 '12 at 4:33
