I once had a math professor who said that although they might not admit it, most mathematicians try to solve the Riemann hypothesis in their spare time.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

How true is this? Who is trying to solve the Riemann hypothesis? I don't just mean "are you?" (although feel free to speak up if you are) but more generally: how big is the group that is trying to solve this? I suppose this strongly depends on how you define "trying"; I can imagine a lot of different levels of "trying it seriously".
