11) Message boards : General discussion : Lindelöf hypothesis formally proved (Message 119154)
Posted 565 days ago by Profile GellyProject donor
I agree that Fokas seems to be well-grounded and researched in his discovery, and would not call him a crockpot. I was just surprised at his use of arXiv, though if what is being said about arXiv becoming more legitimate and acceptable is true, then I have no doubts that what has been discovered is legitimate as he says it is.

Wikipedia was very quick to jump on the gun about "him claiming a proof", as previous edits of the page indicate. Now it seems the truth is that he has another approach to a proof, with more rigor coming in another paper. Perhaps a full proof of the hypothesis will come soon.

"first published on arXiv" usually doesn't bode well for a proof, right? I'd expect an important result like this to be clamored over in other journals and arXiv, historically, seems to be the grounds for amateurs and crackpots.

Though, I suppose Viterbi seems to be a source where reputation is important, and Dr. Fokas does seem to have a measurable amount of respect from his peers from the sources I've found. Perhaps this is legitimate and, from the book I read about the Riemann Hypothesis, would have far-reaching and influencial consequences.

e.g.123456789×2^n


123456789*2^1 - 1 is prime :P

Or k×2^[pandigit]?


I would imagine a number of this size would be difficult to check, since it would have at a minimum 37 million digits (123456789 * log10(2) +1 ~ 37,164,197), which is currently 10 million digits longer than the largest prime found. Perhaps in the future, but I wouldn't bank on making that sort of discovery anytime soon. I suppose there would "only" be 362 thousand numbers to check per k - 724 thousand if you wanted +1 and -1 - but it seems like a lot of work.

I think far more interesting would be a prime where the numbers come in order - something like 1 * 2^(345*678) - 9 or something. I haven't found any resources on them, and while I'd like to search for them, I'm unclear on the number theory of the divisors of the power of 2 and primality and that sort of thing.

First emerald badge.

Considering the insanity that was the SoB challenge this January, and assuming (and hoping and praying) that it's done every year until it's done, my basic graphing skills and line drawing points me to April 22, 2019 .

It's pretty amazing that the 11 or so percentage points that were double checked in half a month were almost equivalent to the half a year the previous 11 took. And it seems like the rate of SoB double check is slightly higher now, even after the challenge and during a TdP.

<alt_platform>windows_intelx86</alt_platform>


Added it in cc_config, restart on computer and BOINC, updated a couple times, left it running. Still the same issue - no tasks, server retrieved none.

There is also a lot of talk about incomplete driver removals when attempting to reinstall or install a new driver. An effective way to totally remove an NVIDIA driver is to use the DDU software at http://www.guru3d.com/files-details/display-driver-uninstaller-download.html.


I did a full removal with DDU, reinstalled latest drivers, restarted the computer, and ran benchmarks to get the GPU detected. Same lack of tasks. Seems to not be a driver issue unless I'm missing something.

A "no_alt_platform" option in cc_config.xml could do this, but I really wonder who (and why) will ever use it.



Indeed, a band-aid fix for this particular problem is to add the <alt_platform> tag into cc_config.xml, but I'd rather fix the root cause of the problem.


Do you want me to try adding the tag into my config to confirm that this is the issue, or are we certain it is? I'm willing to not crunch tasks for the time being to fix the root issue.[/quote]

Changed the DCF from about 0.7 to 1.00000 - increased the estimated time left by a couple hours for some remaining AP projects, but still no download on PPS. Thanks for the suggestion, though.

I have no disk settings, and I have 100+ GB left on the drive BOINC is using. I would be surprised if the disk is an issue.

I would be willing to test on a test server if you want me to, yes. I will be gone in about two weeks for a week, but besides that I'll be able to be in control of my machine for quite a while yet.

I updated the drivers through the Nvidia control panel - assuming that's what "GeForce Experience" is. The driver version is 388.13.
