A mathematician at Purdue University has published a proof of the Reimann Hypothesis. If his proof is valid then it would be a key discovery for mathematics and the search to understand the prime numbers and the hidden structure of the universe. Although it is too early to tell whether his proof will stand up to scrutiny, if it does he will will a $1 million prize and also go down in history as solving one of the most important questions in mathematics.

Allow me to join the horde of

readers who wish you had not spelled

Riemann “Reimann” in the first

sentence of your 06/09/04 piece

on de Brange’s proof of the RH.

Ah good catch. Spelling errors sometimes happen when typing fast! Will fix it now!
