Bandcamp is an ecosystem; this guide explains how that can help your music grow

Bandcamp can work best when you’re both an artist and a fan on the platform. And if you care about actually connected with people, that’s a big deal. I’ve again teamed up with Riemann Kollektion to develop free tutorial material. It’s pretty fitting I think that this falls on Valentine’s Day. I remember a favorite grade school ritual was getting a shoebox and then spreading as many cute affectionate notecards to everyone in the class. (Definitely, you wanted some candy taped to it for bonus ...

Mathematicians Edge Closer to Solving a 'Million Dollar' Math Problem

Did a team of mathematicians just take a big step toward answering a 160-year-old, million-dollar question in mathematics?Maybe. The crew did solve a number of other, smaller questions in a field called number theory. And in doing so, they have reopened an old avenue that might eventually lead to an answer to the old question: Is the Riemann hypothesis correct?The Reimann hypothesis is a fundamental mathematical conjecture that has huge implications for the rest of math. It forms the foundation ...

Mathematicians revive abandoned approach to Riemann Hypothesis

Many ways to approach the Riemann Hypothesis have been proposed during the past 150 years, but none of them have led to conquering the most famous open problem in mathematics. A new paper in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) suggests that one of these old approaches is more practical than previously realized.

Practical consequences of RH ?

When it seemed like Riemann Hypothesis (RH) might be solved (see Lipton-Regan blog entry on RH  here and what it points to for more info) I had the following email exchange with Ajeet Gary (not Gary Ajeet, though I will keep his name in mind for when I want to string together names like George Washington, Washington Irving, Irving Berlin,  with the goal of getting back to the beginning) who is an awesome ugrad at UMCP majoring in Math and CS. Ajeet: So Bill, now that RH has been solved should I ...

Famed Mathematician Claims Proof of 160-Year-Old Riemann Hypothesis

Slashdot reader OneHundredAndTen writes: Sir Michael Atiyah claims to have proved the Riemann hypothesis. This is not some internet crank, but one the towering figures of mathematics in the second half of the 20th century. The thing is, he's almost 90 years old. According to New Scientist, Atiyah is set to present his "simple proof" of the Riemann hypothesis on Monday at the Heidelberg Laureate Forum in Germany. Atiyah has received two awards often referred to as the Nobel prizes of mathematics,...

Riemann Hypothesis proved?

Mathematician Michael Atiyah claims that he’s solved the Riemann hypothesis, one of the great unsolved problems in math, and will deliver a talk about the proof on Monday. In it, he pays tribute to the work of two great 20th century mathematicians, John von Neumann and Friedrich Hirzebruch, whose developments he claims laid the foundations for his own proposed proof. “It fell into my lap, I had to pick it up,” he says. The Riemann hypothesis, which is one of the $1 million Millennium Prize pro...

Modular for dancing: Florian Meindl and Leonard de Leonard

Yes, nests of patch cords and racks of modules will make noodle-y noise for chin scratching. It can also make pounding techno – and we’re going inside some of the sonic brains who’ve mastered that. Our mission: let’s learn how people are actually using modular synthesis to express their musical ideas, and demystify some of the basic concepts in sound creation behind all those cool flashing lights and tangles of wire. To do that, we need musicians like Florian and Leonard. Join the Facebook eve...

Geometry and physics: Though lovers be lost love shall not

The title of this post comes from Dylan Thomas, And Death Shall Have No Dominion (1933). Here I give a non-technical essay on the interplay between geometry and physics, which I hope with give some of the readers a better idea of why I do what I do. Please enjoy and leave feedback if you like. Geometry and physics: Though lovers be lost love shall not To paraphrase a certain Polish mathematician: “the most important ideas in mathematics come from physics”. While there is no reason ...

Entirely new theoretical method for factoring numbers using quantum simulation could lead to a theory of numbers that is based on physical quantum systems

Researchers introduced new concepts and arithmetic functions that could play a significant role in the quantum factorization problem. The Factorization Ensemble is the main one; it allows us to bind the hamiltonian of a quantum factoring simulator. Although the researchers have not yet built a quantum simulator, they show that the prime factors of large numbers would correspond to the energy values of the simulator. Measuring the energy values would then give the solutions to a given factoring p...

How Understanding History is Essential to Creating the Best Possible Future

Neal Stephenson is an author of speculative fiction who weaves minutely detailed historical and technical information into his complex stories, usually combining it with a wicked sense of humor. His ground-breaking novels include Snow Crash, which weaves virtual reality with Sumerian myth, Cryptonomicon, which leaps forward and back between World War II and the World Wide Web, and Anathem, which transports readers into an alternate universe where scientists, philosophers, and mathematicians l...

Riemann hypothesis for period polynomials [Mathematics]

The period polynomial rf(z) for an even weight k≥4 newform f∈Sk(Γ0(N)) is the generating function for the critical values of L(f,s). It has a functional equation relating rf(z) to rf(−1Nz). We prove the Riemann hypothesis for these polynomials: that the zeros of rf(z) lie on the circle |z|=1/N. We prove...

A Mind-Bending Discovery: The Largest Known Prime Number

It is a quite extraordinary figure. Dr. Curtis Cooper from the University of Central Missouri has found the largest-known prime number – written (274207281)-1. It is around 22 million digits long and, if printed in full, would take you days to read. Its discovery comes thanks to a collaborative project of volunteers who use freely available software called GIMPS (Great Internet Mersenne Prime Search) to search for primes. A number which can only be divided by itself and 1 without a remainder is ...

crank math and crank people

In the same week I got email claming: 1) Babai had shown that GI is in quasipoly time. 2)  Opeyemi Enoch, a Nigerian Mathematician, solved the Riemann hypothesis. I believe Babai's claim since (a) he's worked on the problem a lot and is a known expert, (b) the result is believable, and (c) the math we know now seem up to the task. I do not believe Enoch's claim. It would be unfair for me to not believe it because I never heard of him. However, my sources in math say that RH is not in a position...
