  Riemann zeta function - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In mathematics, the Riemann zeta function, named after Bernhard Riemann, is a function of significant importance in number theory, because of its relation to the distribution of prime numbers.
Although mathematicians regard the Riemann zeta function as being primarily relevant to the "purest" of mathematical disciplines, number theory, it also occurs in applied statistics (see Zipf's law and Zipf-Mandelbrot law), physics, and the mathematical theory of musical tuning.
Zeta function regularization is used as one possible means of regularization of divergent series in quantum field theory.

 Riemann hypothesis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Riemann zeta function along the critical line is sometimes studied in terms of the Z function, whose real zeros correspond to the zeros of the zeta function on the critical line.
Riemann mentioned the conjecture that became known as the Riemann hypothesis in his 1859 paper On the Number of Primes Less Than a Given Magnitude, but as it was not essential to his central purpose in that paper, he did not attempt a proof.
The zeroes of the Riemann zeta function and the prime numbers satisfy a certain duality property, known as the explicit formulae which show that in the language of Fourier analysis the zeros of the zeta function can be regarded as the harmonic frequencies in the distribution of primes.

Bernhard Riemann realized that the zeta function can be extended by analytic continuation in a unique way to a holomorphic functionζ(s) defined for all complex numbers s with s ≠ 1.
It is this functionthat is the object of the Riemann hypothesis.
Although mathematicians regard the Riemann zeta function as being primarily relevant to the "purest" of mathematicaldisciplines, number theory, it also occurs in applied statistics (see Zipf's law and Zipf-Mandelbrot law), physics, and the mathematical theory of musical tuning.

 ZetaGrid - Verification of the Riemann Hypothesis
The verification of Riemann's Hypothesis (formulated in 1859) is considered to be one of modern mathematic's most important problems.
The Riemann Hypothesis asserts that all nontrivial zeros of the zeta function are on the critical line (1/2+it where t is a real number).
The result of the computation which verified the first 100 billion zeros of the Riemann zeta function confirms the calculations made previously by other scientists and extends these to the first 100 billion nontrivial zeros.

The Riemann zeta function is defined as follows: infinity zeta(s) = sum (1/n^s) n=1 or, if you like: zeta(s) = 1/1^s + 1/2^s + 1/3^s + 1/4^s +...
This function has an infinite number of zeroes, and except for the trivial zeros at integer negative values, all the rest seem to lie on the line real(s) = 1/2.
Riemann's hypothesis is that all are on that line.

As a complex valued function of a complex variable, the graph of the Riemann zeta function ζ(s) lives in four dimensional real space.

This book is a study of Bernhard Riemann's epoch-making 8-page paper "On the Number of Primes Less Than a Given Magnitude," and of the subsequent developments in the theory which this paper inaugurated.
It includes a translation of Riemann's original paper (On the Number of Primes...) which is very nice and most authors now seem to forget to mention (mainly because of the obscure way in which it was written).
It has always seemed to me that the very best modern books on the Riemann Zeta Function, and its applications to analytic number theory, are either written at a vey high or a very low level of mathematical sophistication.
