HaberleTV Comment: Michael Atiyah who is a mathematician at the University of Edinburgh announced that he had come up with a simple proof to solve the Riemann hypothesis.For more details read the text…

Bernhard Riemann’s Hypothesis 

the one of the most famous hypothesis is belonged to Bernhard Riemann. The hypothesis was first put forth by German mathematician Bernhard Riemann in 1859. To sum up, the hypothesis focuses on the prime numbers. Besides, Riemann emphasized  that the frequency of prime numbers apparently closely follows one equation that became known as the Riemann Zeta function.

10,000,000,000,000 Solutions

This math problem is known as ”unsolved”. However, officials have decided the term of ”unsolved” after nearly 10,000,000,000,000 solutions. Riemann Zeta function is the key for solving these kind of problems according to experts.

Michael Atiyah 

Atiyah is one of the most important mathematician from all around the world according to the area of science. Atiyah’s proof is based on an unrelated physics number called the “fine structure constant,”. He is 89 years old, and he is famous with his contributions to the subjects of physics and mathematics and his awards such as Abel Prize in 2004.
