Proof of Riemann Hypothesis Sir Michael Atiyah is a huge name in mathematics. He's one of the best mathematicians alive today. He has proven the famous AtiyahSinger index theorem, and has won a Fields medal. What's more, at 90(!!) years of age, he will present this monday a proof of the Riemann hypothesis, arguably the most important unsolved mathematical result of this time. This is huge news, but many mathematicians are skeptical. Moreso because Atiyah claims the proof is "simple". Nevertheless, Atiyah wants to show math is not a young man's game only, and somebody of 90 can do something relevant. Very exciting!

There is also a one million dollar prize for anyone who can prove Atiyah's proof is correct. 
Surely Atiyah would get the prize. This thread is an example of why cranks should be run off the forum. I saw this thread and ignored it because I assumed it was some idiot claiming to have done it with 6th grade maths. I should make clear that I didn't notice that the thread author was Micrm@ss. The (pretty poor) article that brought me here: https://www.iflscience.com/editorsb...ollarproblem/ 
It is my sincere hope that Atiyah is correct. Mathematics needs to move on from this. 
This is huge, just think of all the mathematical theorems currently based on the assumption that the Riemann Hypothesis is true. Exciting!
