His claimed proof will likely take days or possibly months to check by other experts.
What are potential impacts of solving this?Edit
The Riemann hypothesis concerns the average distribution of prime numbers. Prime numbers are natural numbers (0, 1, 2, 3…) greater than 1 and which cannot be formed by multiplying two smaller natural numbers.
Some mathematicians who listened to his lecture on his “proof” were skeptical (Science).
“What he showed in the presentation is very unlikely to be anything like a proof of the Riemann hypothesis as we know it,” Jørgen Veisdal, an economist at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim said. “It is simply too vague and unspecific.”
The Riemann hypothesis is one of the Clay Institute’s six unsolved “Millennium Prize” problems and is eligible for a $1 million prize.
