Default Number theorists open thy book... and heal thyselves

Hi math people

Okay so I really don't have much to say for myself.

I heard that the Clay Math Institute $ One Million Dollars U.S. for the solution of any of seven problems.

http://www.claymath.org/millennium-problems

IMHO (in my humble opinion) the hardest problem is the Reimann Hypothesis. The Reimann Hypothesis will probrably not be solved for 250 years IMHO.

Best of luck,

Regards,
Matt A

There is "only" 6 living problems, Poincaré conjecture has been solved by Grigori Perelman in 2003.

Grigori Perelman et al. He was very adamant about the et al (and correctly so IMO).

Sorry, I'm in a funny mood today.

FWIW, my opinion on which is easiest or hardest of the challenges not worth considering because I also don't know enough about the subject.

It is difficult to make predictions, especially about the future. (various attributions.)

BTW, for those interested, he July, 2016 issue of the Bulletin of the AMS contains a review of the book "Lectures on the Riemann zeta function, by H. Iwaniec" (review by Brian Conrey).

It will never be solved because there is no such thing. The Riemann Hypothesis, on the other hand...

Until it solved ( if ever) we need to continue searching for primes in our ( regular way)

Might be easier to invent/discover time-travel and then just set up a loop with future primes being used to help boost current primes and thus find more future primes.

So solution is simple :lets invent/discover time travel

Just let me find an envelope and an HB pencil and we can get started.

Default Millenium problems

Fermat's last theorem may not have any practical applications. However the search for a valid proof has generated many useful maths In other words Riemann's hypothesis
and other unsolved problems drive search for new discoveries and inventions of new maths tools.
