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 2016-07-01, 08:53 #2 R.

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 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.

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.
