The Riemann hypothesis concerns the average distribution of <a href="https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prime_number">prime numbers.</a> Prime numbers are natural numbers (0, 1, 2, 3...) greater than 1 and which cannot be formed by multiplying two smaller natural numbers. | The Riemann hypothesis concerns the average distribution of <a href="https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prime_number">prime numbers.</a> Prime numbers are natural numbers (0, 1, 2, 3...) greater than 1 and which cannot be formed by multiplying two smaller natural numbers. | ||
