... we may have proved the Riemann Hypothesis...I confess if they aren't even convinced, I find it hard to be optimistic.
Crackpots don't doubt themselves, so this guy passes the crackpot test.
I wish I could understand it better even with many years of college math and wikipedia
perhaps he tries to be humble... the positivity 'test' of the double integral given by Polya seems correct , perhaps an expert of number theory should take a look at this paper
Did Wiles also pass the Crackpot test when he announced he found the proof of Fermat's theorem, only to discover later that there was a fatal flaw in it [which he was able to fix later at the very moment when he was taking a final look to understand better why he had faled and why he would not be able to succeed (making it easier to put the matter to rest in his mind)].
Or does the Crackpot test itself pass the Crackpot test :rofl:
you pass the crackpot test but fail the reading comprehension test. to pass the crackpot test is to not be a crackpot. you passed since you have doubts.
I suppose this is a catch-22, for if they were convinced, I'd generally be even less optimistic.
When asked "what if" his general theory of relativity had been disproven by experiment, Albert Einstein replied: "Then I would feel sorry for the good Lord. The theory is correct."
Sounds pretty self-assured to me, but he was no crackpot.
Yet another proof? Authors seem to different.
Good lord, that's a hell'a'va proof he has there. I wish I understood the half of it (I barely understand the zeta function by itself...) What do you fella's make of it?
Just a gut feeling that none of them are even close. Of course I know nothing either.
Terence Tao thinks that something might be wrong with the approach.
Well, far be it for us to question a Fields medalist.
EDIT: Ok I applaud the effort of this auto-keyword-link thing, but this has gone too far!
Heh, yeah. Maybe we can have a list of stop-phrases?
Haha...the paper was withdrawn due to an error on the 28th page.
Here is yet another attempt
