Topics

Topics that are not marked with (taken) are available.
  1. Lagarias, Jeffrey C. - An elementary problem equivalent to the Riemann hypothesis. Amer. Math. Monthly 109 (2002), no. 6, 534–543. (taken)
  2. Barrett, Wayne W.; Forcade, Rodney W.; Pollington, Andrew D. - On the spectral radius of a (0,1) matrix related to Mertens' function. Proceedings of the Victoria Conference on Combinatorial Matrix Analysis (Victoria, BC, 1987). Linear Algebra Appl. 107 (1988), 151–159. Note: student should explain a little bit about why sum(j=1,n,mu(n)) << n^(1/2+epi) is equivalent to RH. (taken)
  3. Levinson, Norman - More than one third of zeros of Riemann's zeta-function are on σ=1/2 Advances in Math. 13 (1974), 383–436. Note: Simpler and more accessible expositions given by Young [MR2745463] and Bombieri [MR0444585]. Note: Comment that Conrey has the best result essentially: 40%. (taken)
