One of the most famous problems in the history of mathematics, posed by Johann Bernoulli in 1696 (I won't state the official name of it, in order to make it not too google-able ;P):
Find the curve along which a particle will slide without friction in the minimum time from one given point P to another point Q, the second point being lower than the first but not directly beneath it.
