Another eleven days have gone by since my last entry. Since then, I got a cold and recovered (mostly), but it wasn’t too bad, since I proved the Riemann Hypothesis with all my extra time. I made it to the double bar in my fugue, but now I need to figure out how to create stretti in it.

Yesterday I was the only student to show up on time to Fitzgerald, so Ryavec showed me how to find some zero-free regions of the zeta function on the 1/2-line — a proof that there are no zeros of the form 1/2+it with |t|<.8 or so using only basic calculus. The next step is to get up to about 14.134725.


About Simon

Hi. I'm Simon Rubinstein-Salzedo. I'm a mathematics postdoc at Dartmouth College. I'm also a musician; I play piano and cello, and I also sometimes compose music and study musicology. I also like to play chess and write calligraphy. This blog is a catalogue of some of my thoughts. I write them down so that I understand them better. But sometimes other people find them interesting as well, so I happily share them with my small corner of the world.

    Hehe. I’m glad to hear that you solved that pesky problem; now all the books like Music of the Primes will have to be rewritten.
