2018 Sept 24 – Sir Michael Atiyah is set to present his “simple proof” of the Riemann hypothesis on Monday at the Heidelberg Laureate Forum in Germany. The hypothesis is intimately connected to the distribution of prime numbers, those indivisible by any whole number other than themselves and one,” reports New Scientist. “If the hypothesis is proven to be correct, mathematicians would be armed with a map to the location of all such prime numbers, a breakthrough with far-reaching repercussions in the field.” – soylentnews.org
