comment What are the precise statements by Shouryya Ray of particle dynamics problems posed by Newton which this news article claims have been solved?
I doubt that it is the student's fault that he is presented as the nerd genius solving the problems that have stumped centuries of mathematicians. Newspapers love this. "High school student shows a lot of promise and might be a very good researcher in 10 years." just doesn't cut it.

I have sent an email to the organisers, asking them if the results are accessible somewhere. But the point is that this competition is a very well-reputed one, so it is likely that the student did something reasonable in a correct way. It's not so likely that it is the breakthrough that the newspapers make out of it or even worthy of a publication. (To give you an idea, the two runners-up in the category mathematics wrote a computer program to simulate the composition of fugues and a computer program for ray-tracing.)
