I have heard about the Riemann Zeta function to be some kind of physical partition function..my question is..could we consider primes as "Energy levels" (eigenvalues) of a certain partition function or operator?..in the form that exit an operator P so:

[tex] P|\psi>=p_{n}|\psi> [/tex]

could someone give some information of the "Riemann zeta function" as an statistical partition function?..thanks.
