thanks mathwonk, you have been an inspiration throughout this entire thread. I honestly read through practically the entire thread several times and at disperse instances just because of the quality of your posts.

and to Outlined, only dead ones count in the debate of greatest of all time, I just wanted to incite a dicussion about Perelman and the current developments in topology. This is not yet my area of focus, but I plan on getting around to it, currently studying prime numbers and set theory. I need to study the geometrization conjecture a bit more, although I believe I understand the fundamental principles of topology.

Mathwonk, speaking of reading the masters in their own words, I was reading Riemann's 1859 paper (calling it that for lack of will to recall the German name), and I was wondering if you could recommend a good book in complex analysis specific for understanding the jump he made in end of page 2 and page 3 to derive the functional equation. Thanks
