Math Focus: Mainly analysis and algebra
A more accurate title would be "Riemann Hypothesis not proven by physicists".
Thanks from Maschke

while true it does appear that they made a breakthrough

The elementary proof is yet to come soon
Only new concepts will get rid of all the hardest problems.

No breakthrough. Circular logic. Peter Woit at Not Even Wrong has a good writeup.

Why put the title "Riemann Hypothesis proven by physicists" when it's clearly not the case?

The only smart to push to red the article is to tell you that it was proven.
If I wrote Riemann Hypothesis not yet proven then no one will dare to read it.
Anyway my feeling is that many hard mathematical problems will be solved by non mathematician people (biology, physics, medicine, or any other fields) or even amateurs.
Solve the set of problems I had sent today. It is linked to RH.

Uh ... sorry. What?? Internet users are still commenting on Cantor's diagonal argument. Will that ever be finished?

This is the first time iI've ever seen anyone make the claim that an article someone wrote is not finished as long as Internet commenters are still posting.

I must really have misunderstood you. Can you elaborate?

You deliberately mis-stated the conclusion to get clicks? Am I the only one not getting paid by the click around here? Moderators, where's my check?
