The **Riemann Hypothesis** is that all non-trivial zeros of the Riemannsche ζ-Funktion lie on the critical line: 1/2 + it, where t is a real number and i is the imaginary unit. This may mean nothing to you if you are uninvolved in the world of number theory, but, at the core of all the great wonders of technology that you enjoy daily, it is there, staring out at you.

## Quotes

- "The Riemann Hypothesis is the most basic connection between addition and multiplication that there is, so I think of it in the simplest terms as something really basic that we don't understand about the link between addition and multiplication." — Brian Conrey
