I've come up with a way of finding prime numbers that make up a number without using maths. Where is the best place to post this?

I don't know what you mean by "without maths", but you could post on our Number Theory forum.

I approached a well known mathematician and they've offered to look over my idea. I'll report back with any news.

Just for the record, 99.9% of academics are professional about their work and will not take credit for someone else's work. Another way of looking at it is that a typical academic will already have an excessive workload so they won't want to add to it!

For the paranoid, posting it online first (somewhere stable and with a timestamp) can give evidence of priority. Other methods are likewise possible  registering copyright, for example. (You already own a copyright when you write the material, but registering it gives you that extra fuzzy feeling associated with your claim. Unfortunately in the academic community this doesn't establish priority, but if you're worried about outright theft this should help.)

Riemann hypothesis: dear researcher , professor, this question directed to a researcher in pur mathematics , does the imaginary part of non trivial zeros of Riemann zeta function the unknown operator that poyla and hilbert discussed for it? , if it is Then i find a new hermitien operator where it's verified the 10 properties of quantum analogue that was suggested by quantum chaos and nonrelativist mechanical , this operator that i found affirme n give me a good results where it's a negation of this claim " All non trivial zeros of zeta function have a real part equal 1/2 " , by this operator the claim that i cited will be a special case , then i found all non trivial zeros of Riemann zeta function have a real part betew 0 and 2. pleas if what i cited is true , let us to send my paper n my work for improving it's in order to will complet n accurate . my calculation n my verification was made by wolfram alpha . thanks for ur helpful
