Riemann Hypothesis: A Status Report

The Riemann Hypothesis is one of the most famous unsolved problems in mathematics. Like the recently solved Last Theorem of Fermat, many of the world's best mathematicians have tried over the years to prove it; however, the Riemann Hypothesis has much broader consequences in Number Theory. We will discuss the status of the Riemann Hypothesis. The discussion will be leisurely and aimed at a general mathematical audience.
