The Riemann Hypothesis
is 150 years old

The Riemann Hypothesis -- the most important unsolved problem in mathematics -- celebrates its 150th birthday in 2009.

Three special events will celebrate this landmark.

Upcoming events

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).

Note: 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. (Link available on November 18.)
