Re: Riemann hypothesisHello Oliver! "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #77 20060802 17:17:28
Re: Riemann hypothesisI am not sure if anyone give this reference to the Millenium Problems: http://www.claymath.org/millennium/ "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #78 20060803 00:12:05
Re: Riemann hypothesisoh yeah ricky, didnt think about that :p #79 20060803 02:26:33

Re: Riemann hypothesisAnd I think Wikipedia is a place where you can understand complicated maths. IPBLE: Increasing Performance By Lowering Expectations. #81 20060803 02:45:30

Re: Riemann hypothesisWikipedia provides great reference for information. But it really only makes sense once you understand the topic. Don't get me wrong, it may help. But you are better off looking for a book or site which is meant to teach. "In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..." #83 20060803 04:02:41

Yes. You're right. IPBLE: Increasing Performance By Lowering Expectations. #84 20060803 07:32:43
Re: Riemann hypothesis
I agree  and I think it is a problem for Wikipedia. I have noticed articles that were simple and useful become more and more like something only a researcher would read.

Re: Riemann hypothesisBut give them time. As soon as they are done making articles such as Fictional Brands in South Park, I'm sure they'll go back to touch up the important ones "In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..." #86 20060803 09:10:04

Re: Riemann hypothesisI'm telling you, they have everything. The best was Steven Colbert. He has a satirical news show on Comedy Central, the Colbert Report (you don't pronounce either 't'). On his show last night, he said in the intro in which he summarizes what will be in the show, "Then I give a report on wikipedia. You can read about it on wikipedia in 10 minutes." "In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..." #89 20130322 19:55:36
Re: Riemann hypothesisHi; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.
