Riemann Hypothesis

  1. Sep 4, 2003 #1
    Just an opinion question, do you think that the riemann hypothesis will ever be proven? If so, how long do you think it will take?

    Yes! It will definitely be proven by 2072.

    + or - 0.21 years? :wink:

    Don't know, and don't know. Probably yes, and probably within 1000 years.

    Didn't somebody have a serious proposed proof earlier this year? Whatever became of that?

    They did? I must have missed that...

    All I have heard is an improved test to prove a number is a prime number.

    I think he means the Poincare conjecture?

    Ooh, dumb me. Of course I did, sorry.

    On Riemann, I think it's at least even odds that the answer will come out of physics. The string folks are doing some very subtle things now, and remember monstrous moonshine.
