    Hypothesis on Riemann Hypothesis

    I was thinking perhaps the Riemann hypothesis is independent from ZFC Axioms!

    It would be a supprise, this might be the first result in analysis which is unprovable.

    Did Riemann prove that there was a solution, or was it someone else?

    The Riemann Hypothesis is unproven, which is why its a hypothesis. In fact
    it is one of the Millennium Prize problems for which the Clay Mathematics
    Institute is offering a $1M prize.

    is it possible to know that a solution exists without knowing the solution?
    if i remember correctly, some mathematicians made a failed attempt to prove that riemann had no solution.

    did riemann know the solution?

    No, Riemann himself said he does not know. This is why it is called a hypothesis.
