The Riemann hypothesis is arguably the most difficult and perplexing unsolved theorems in all of mathematics. There is currently a $1,000,000 prize for it's solution. It's been 153 years since it's inception in 1859 and no mathematician has ever been able to solve it, not even Bernhard Riemann himself.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

What would happen if it actually did get solved? I read that it's solution would require a complete re-thinking of mathematics itself and could have a major impact in economics, finance, computer programming, cyber security, etc...
