A new polymath proposal (related to the Riemann Hypothesis) over Tao’s blog

(From a post “the music of the primes” by  Marcus du Sautoy.)


A new polymath proposal over Terry Tao’s blog who wrote: “Building on the interest expressed in the comments to this previous post, I am now formally proposing to initiate a “Polymath project” on the topic of obtaining new upper bounds on the de Bruijn-Newman constant {\Lambda}. The purpose of this post is to describe the proposal and discuss the scope and parameters of the project.”

Briefly showing that \Lambda \le 0 is the Rieman Hypothesis, and it is known that \Lambda \le 1/2.  Brad Rodgers and Terry Tao proved an old conjecture that \Lambda \ge 0. The purpose of the project is to push down this upper bound. (The RH is not considered a realistic outcome.)

  4. I know the probability of me being wrong is high…but my life has always been risky:

    Luis-Báez approach. I Have used Hölder’s inequality. Don´t judge a book by its cover,
