Bernhard Riemann (Breselenz, 1826) made lasting contributions to analysis, number theory, and differential geometry, some of them enabling the later development of General Relativity. His works opened up research areas combining analysis with geometry in algebraic geometry, complex manifold theory and Riemannian geometry (elaborated by Felix Klein and Adolf Hurwitz). This area of mathematics is part of the foundation of topology and is still being applied in novel ways to mathematical…

The distribution of primes among all natural numbers does not follow any pattern, however the German mathematician Riemann (1826 - 1866) observed that the frequency of prime numbers is closely related to the behavior of an elaborate function ζ(s) = 1 + 1/2s + 1/3s + 1/4s + ...called the Riemann Zeta function. The Riemann hypothesis says that all interesting solutions of the equation ζ(s) = 0 lie on a certain vertical straight line. This has been checked for the first 1,500,000,000…
