One of the lesser articles I’ve seen on the topic thus far…
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.
