Famed mathematician claims proof of 160-year-old Riemann hypothesis | New Scientist
I'm cautiously skeptical about this, but we'll see in little time whether it's a real proof or just another failed attempt. What do you guys think?

Screenshot of his abstract on twitter.
Comments about this on Reddit.
For a guy giving it a go in his 90's you've got to admire him.
He's trying to prove something that's evaded the best minds in mathematics based on old classical methods.
We'll know on Monday in any case.

I predict it's not going to hold up. Atiyah's recent big claims, like his supposed proof that the 6-sphere admits no complex structures, have not been holding up.

Everyone who knows him well has been too embarrassed to publicly discuss the reasons.

The RH proof paper: https://drive.google.com/file/d/17NBICP6OcUSucrXKNWvzLmrQpfUrEKuY/view

Well I don't know enough to say anything about this paper. It's certainly short.

I think this is related to the original posting:

Mathematicians Discovered a Computer Problem that No One Can Ever Solve

Mathematicians have discovered a problem they cannot solve. It's not that they're not smart enough; there simply is no answer.

The problem has to do with machine learning — the type of artificial-intelligence models some computers use to "learn" how to do a specific task.

... Gödel and Cohen showed that it's impossible to prove that the continuum hypothesis is right, but also it's impossible to prove that it's wrong. "Is the continuum hypothesis true?" is a question without an answer.

In a paper published Monday, Jan. 7, in the journal Nature Machine Intelligence, the researchers showed that EMX is inextricably linked to the continuum hypothesis.
