The Riemann hypothesis is the most notorious unsolved problem in all of mathematics. Ever since it was first proposed by Bernhard Riemann in 1859, the conjecture has maintained the status of the "Holy Grail" of mathematics. In fact, the person who solves it will win a $1 million prize from the Clay Institute of Mathematics. So, what is the Riemann hypothesis? Why is it so important? What can it tell us about the chaotic universe of prime numbers? And why is its proof so elusive? Alex Kontorovich, professor of mathematics at Rutgers University, breaks it all down in this comprehensive explainer.

The Riemann Hypothesis is assumed to be true in some applications in cryptography and quantum physics. Now, if one of the applications which are dependent fails, would this constitute a refutation of the Hypothesis? Conversely, if one of the applications could independently be proven true, would this be a proof?

Vor 5 Tage## uriviper

If an application fails it would disprove the Hypothesis, this is just what we call "Proof by contradiction". However, proving an application independently does not prove the Hypothesis. In fact, many things that were first proved using the RH were later proved independently.

I don't think you explained it quire right. The graph is simply the number of primes encountered as we proceed. It doesn't tell the number of prime you see nearby value of x. So if x is 1000 the y axis simply tells number of primes less than 1000.

Vor 10 Tage## Bob Bobathan

I suppose another strange mathematical conundrum is that at some point there will be a prime number with an infinite gap between it and the next, but it is impossible to prove.

Vor 10 Tage## MuffinsAPlenty

No, the gaps between primes can get arbitrarily large, but not infinitely large. The natural numbers have the sort of most compact version of infinity. Picking any two natural numbers, there are only finitely many natural numbers between them. So if there was an "infinite gap", this would imply that there's a largest prime number, which there isn't. There are infinitely many primes.

@MuffinsAPlenty no bro, I agree with you. I was replying to OP. These Indian nationalists are getting cringe these days, thank you for giving them some GK and sense.

Vor 9 Tage## MuffinsAPlenty

@Chinmay Kulkarni No one is confusing Grigori Perelman with the current situation. The current situation is that a physicist from India (Dr. Kumar Eswaran) claimed to have proven the Riemann Hypothesis in 2016. He released the final version of his attempted proof in 2018. He submitted his attempted proof to journals in 2018, but all the journals either rejected his paper or refused to even send it to review. However, people publicly pointed out errors in his attempted proof. But because no one was accepting his attempted proof (because he was wrong), Eswaran decided to go around the peer review process and invent his own process to get recognition. He got together some professors in India to form an "expert committee" to determine whether his proof was correct or not. The expert committee used an "open review" process and created a formal document declaring that Eswaran's proof is correct. (There are a _lot_ of issues with the conclusions of the "expert committee".) All that being said, to someone who isn't familiar with mathematics research, the report of the "expert committee" looks really impressive. So the media in India began running stories about how Kumar Eswaran had proven the Riemann Hypothesis (and some claimed he won the million dollar prize). This started being picked up by the Indian media a little over two weeks ago. But as I said above, Eswaran's attempted proof is wrong, and we have known that it's wrong since he released his final draft in 2018 (his current draft is unchanged from what he released in 2018).

Vor 9 Tage## MuffinsAPlenty

Riemann was a complete genius. It's good that this video correctly credit him and Gauss for laying the foundations for SR. I've only seen them credited once before. Most people seem to think that Einstein came up with it out of thin air and it's been stated we'd have had to wait 80 years if Einstein hadn't done it. Apart from Gauss and Rheimann disproving this, Hilbert was working on his own form of SR in parallel with Einstein.
