Read Skepticism surrounds renowned mathematician’s attempted proof of 160-year-old hypothesis (Science | AAAS)
The Riemann hypothesis, a formula related to the distribution of prime numbers, has remained unsolved for more than a century

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

👓 Riemann hypothesis, fine structure constant, Todd function | John D. Cook

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.

Read Mathematician-M.D. introduces a new methodology suggesting a solution to one of the greatest open problems in the history of mathematics by Daniel Druhora (USC Viterbi School of Engineering)

A completely new approach suggests the validity of the 110-year-old Lindelöf hypothesis, opening up the possibilities of new discoveries in quantum computing, number theory and cybersecurity

Athanassios Fokas, a mathematician from the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics of the University of Cambridge and visiting professor in the Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical Engineering at the USC Viterbi School of Engineering has announced a novel method suggesting a solution to one of the long-standing problems in the history of mathematics, the Lindelöf Hypothesis.
