Riemann's Hypothesis

Left: Riemann; right: his Zeta function.

It's not everyday that somewhat abstract math makes the front of the NYT web site; today is an exception. This story is about attempts to prove Riemann's hypothesis about the distribution of zeros of his Zeta function (with implications for the distribution of prime numbers).

The NYT talking about numbers? Even complex numbers? Uh, is it hot in here?
