There is a preprint of his paper out now and he gave his lecture a few minutes ago. Unfortunately, as many people feared, he does not have a proof. Its even worse in fact. The paper and his talk are evidence that he has lost quite a bit of mental faculty. Most of the paper discusses "weakly analytic functions" which he defines in a way that seems meaningless. His definition automatically implies analyticity. It was also pointed out by someone else that his "proof" does not use any properties of $\zeta$ which means he seems to have proved that every analytic function has zeros only on the critical line. Its quite sad that somebody allowed this event to happen. One hopes it does not tarnish his legacy.

A,D,T are generally accepted in the authors broader field, but are of course challengeable. v8archie, for example, might wish to publish a paper challenging someones A,D,T. The A,D,T for such a paper would be quite simple: ZFC.

Amazing that members of MMF are in the inner circle of those qualified to judge Atiyah's paper within minutes no less.

But as he says, "Nobody believes any proof of the Riemann hypothesis, let alone a proof by someone who’s 90".

Why automatically make a negative judgement without knowing the reason for an action? Last edited by skipjack; September 24th, 2018 at 07:47 AM.
