In a recent talk at the Heidelberg Laureate Forum, he created a stir with his claim to have solved the 159-year-old Riemann hypothesis, long one of the great unsolved problems in mathematics. The Riemann Hypothesis when proved will give the final answer on the distribution of primes.\" \"The Riemann Hypothesis is not only an unsolved mathematics problem, but it is also one of the deepest problems in mathematics that make connections to other unresolved mathematics problems.\" When I had solved this I realized that the same methods would solve the Riemann Hypothesis. I did not aim for the Riemann Hypothesis, it just came to me.\"

When you want to outsmart the world, you turn to the facts. And the facts are in the science.
