# Attempted proofs of P vs NP

What are the most recent (say in the last 3 years) attempts at disproving $$P = NP$$, and where can I find the papers?

• I assume the downvotes (not me) because most such attempts have an obvious flaw in them and do not really add to our understanding of the problem. – Joshua Grochow May 29 at 15:15
• Have you tried the search feature of arXiv? – Clement C. May 29 at 21:41

The last such serious attempt was likely Norbert Blum's attempted proof of P $$\neq$$ NP in 2017. Not long after it was submitted to arxiv, it was discovered to have a serious (but nontrivial) flaw.
