Abstract:

The Riemann Hypothesis is now the most famous unsolved problem in mathematics. It has stimulated extensive computations, including development of novel algorithms that are similar to those used in astrophysical simulations and in signal processing. These computations have so far confirmed the predictions of the Riemann Hypothesis, as well as of other, even more speculative conjectures. However, there is still a serious question of what these results mean.
