The Riemann Hypothesis
The Riemann Hypothesis -- the most important unsolved problem in
mathematics -- celebrates its 150th birthday in 2009.
is 150 years old
Three special events will celebrate this landmark.
RH Day: On November 18, 2009 the anniversary of the Riemann
Hypothesis will be celebrated with
a series of lectures
all over the world.
See the lecture schedule
(additional lectures are welcome).
Riemann communicated his paper to the
Monatsberichte der Berliner Akademie on October 19, 1859, and Kummer read
the paper at the meeting of the academy on November 3.
The specific date it appeared in print, which would
be the "official" date of the paper, does not seem to be known.
(Thank you to Juan Arias de Reyna
for this information.)
Problem Lists: Also on November 18, 2009, a new interactive
tool for maintaining problem lists will be released. A list of
problems related to the Riemann Hypothesis will be featured.
