    The Riemann hypothesis is old and its only getting older and with new techniques and theory are we getting closer to cracking it once and for all or are we simply no closer than Riemann himself was. You decide!

    This is a ridiculous question, and no vote of this sort has the slightest meaning. No one knows. Period.

    For a nice discussion of the Riemann Hypothesis, the piece by Enrico Bombieri written for the Clay Mathematics Institute which lists the RH as one of the Milenium Problems is highly recommended.

    He's not taking it too seriously at all. And I agree. Fact is, it hasn't been solved because we don't know what it will take, obviously. If we don't know what it will take, we cannot know exactly how far off that is. There's no way to know. That's all there is to it.

    Perhaps the readers of this forum would be interested in my new book.

    Thanks. Sam Gilbert

    Sometimes when I'm thinking of math, there's nothing like a cold glass of Coca-Cola to sharpen my senses.

    Mmmmm. There's nothing like that crisp Coca-Cola taste. Why don't you have one right now?

    Any closer to proving the Riemann Hypothesis ?

    I didn't think so.

    He was talking about drinking Coca Cola, not proving the RH.
