### How old was Bernhard Riemann when he died?

39 years (1826–1866)Bernhard Riemann / Age at death

**What is Riemann famous for?**

Bernhard Riemann made profound, far-sighted discoveries with lasting consequences for mathematics and our understanding of space, gravity, and time. Riemannian geometry completely reformed the field of geometry and became the mathematical foundation of Einstein’s general theory of relativity.

**Has Riemann hypothesis been proven?**

The Riemann hypothesis, a formula related to the distribution of prime numbers, has remained unsolved for more than a century.

## What did David Hilbert invent in math?

Hilbert proved the theorem of invariants—that all invariants can be expressed in terms of a finite number. In his Zahlbericht (“Commentary on Numbers”), a report on algebraic number theory published in 1897, he consolidated what was known in this subject and pointed the way to the developments that followed.

### Is there a proof for Riemann hypothesis?

If ζ(s) = 0, then 1 − s, ¯s and 1 − ¯s are also zeros of ζ: i.e. ζ(s) = ζ(1 − s) = ζ(¯s) = ζ(1 − ¯s) = 0. Therefore, to prove the “Riemann Hypothesis” (RH), it is sufficient to prove that ζ has no zero on the right hand side 1/2 < ℜ(s) < 1 of the critical strip.

**What did Riemann study?**

Riemann studied the convergence of the series representation of the zeta function and found a functional equation for the zeta function. The main purpose of the paper was to give estimates for the number of primes less than a given number.
