Read Atiyah and the Fine-Structure Constant by Sean Carroll (Sean Carroll)
Sir Michael Atiyah, one of the world’s greatest living mathematicians, has proposed a derivation of α, the fine-structure constant of quantum electrodynamics. A preprint is here. The math her…

  1. Read Riemann hypothesis, fine structure constant, Todd function by John D. Cook (johndcook.com)

    This morning Sir Michael Atiyah gave a presentation at the Heidelberg Laureate Forum with a claimed proof of the Riemann hypothesis. The Riemann hypothesis (RH) is the most famous open problem in mathematics, and yet Atiyah claims to have a simple proof.

    Based on the update that the whole thing may fall apart, but the fact that it’s based on the Todd function as it reaches a limit for the fine structure constant might provide an answer to Sean Carroll’s issues? We’ll see what comes of it.
