Abstract:

"In The Riemann Hypothesis, acclaimed author Karl Sabbagh interviews some of the world-class mathematicians who spend their lives working on the hypothesis - many paying particular attention to "Riemann's zeros," a series of points that are believed to lie in a straight line, though no one can prove it - and whose approaches to meeting the challenges thrown up by the hypothesis are as diverse as their personalities."--Jacket.
