S.I.Adian Very much like "Fermat's last theorem" in number theory, Burnside's problem has acted as a catalyst for research in group theory. The fascination exerted by a problem with an extremely simple formulation which then turns out to be extremely difficult has something irresistible about it to the mind of the mathematician.
