Did a Nigerian Mathematician really solve the Riemann Hypothesis?
Quite recently false reports of a Nigerian mathematician Opeyemi Enoch solving the Riemann Hypothesis has been spreading. The Riemann Hypothesis is a 156 year-old math problem proposed by German mathematician Bernhard Riemann and is considered by some mathematicians to be the most important unresolved problem in pure mathematics.
The Riemann hypothesis along with Goldbach’s conjecture are part of the eight problems in David Hilbert’s list of 23 unsolved problems. It is also one of Clay Mathematics Institute Millennium Prize Problems with a reward of $ 1 million. In mathematics, the hypothesis is a conjecture that the Riemann zeta function has its zeros only at the negative even integers and the complex numbers with real part of ½.
