rstanding the Riemann Hypothesis

\nSundar Sundaramurthy

\n

\nThere is a close connection between
the roots of Riemann’s zeta function and prime numbers. Prime numbers play
an important role in cryptography. The Riemann Hypothesis is the most imp
ortant unsolved problem in all of mathematics. It was hypothesised more th
an 150 years ago. The reason it is not proven yet is because of the comple
x nature of analysis in the fourth dimension. In this talk we will try to
understand the hypothesis and give possible directions for solving it. For
clarity\, we will be using a graphical method using Labview software. We
will also make a geometric construction to get the concept clear. A basic
understanding of complex variable theory is required for the audience. Cur
rently\, supercomputer resources are used to prove or disprove the Riemann
hypothesis using brute force techniques. The Clay Institute in Cambridge\
, Massachussets has offered 1M$ in money to whoever gives a proof to this
hypothesis.

\nSundar M. Sundaramurthy is the Chief Technical Officer
