This is a delightful little book, not quite like anything else that i am aware of its goal (to quote the authors) is to explain, in as direct a manner as possible and with the least mathematical background required, what [the riemann hypothesis] is all about and why it is so important.

Verifying the riemann hypothesis basic strategy since there are infinitely many non-trivial zeros of the zeta function, there is no way you can verify computationally that they all lie on the critical line.
From the fun fact files, here is a fun fact at the advanced level: riemann hypothesis: if you know about complex numbers, you will be able to appreciate one of the great unsolved problems of our time. The riemann hypothesis, proposed by bernhard riemann (1859), is a conjecture that the non-trivial zeros of the riemann zeta function all have real part 1/2. The riemann hypothesis is one of the most important conjectures in mathematics it is a statement about the zeros of the riemann zeta function various geometrical and arithmetical objects can be described by so-called global l-functions, which are formally similar to the riemann zeta-function. He's right to be surprised - as reported in vanguard, a nigerian newspaper: the 156-year old riemann hypothesis, one of the most important problems in mathematics, has been successfully resolved by nigeria scholar, dr opeyemi enoch suspicion levels are raised, as the paper also reports. In the proof of the correctness of the riemann hypothesis held strong godel's incompleteness theorem in keeping with the ideas of poja and hadamard's mathematical inventions, we decided to go beyond the modern achievements of the gauss law of prime numbers and riemann transformations in the.

Nigerian professor opeyemi enoch wednesday insisted he has found a solution to the complex riemann hypothesis. The importance of the riemann hypothesis is that a lot of questions about prime numbers can be reformulated into questions about the non trivial zeros of the riemann zeta function.
