I have received now message from so@one-zero.eu include paper show that the Auther proved the Riemann hypothesis as shown here in this paperwhich include both relation between the distribution of the primes and also ABC conjecture proof in this paper ., My question here is : Is this a spam mail or really both RH and ABC conjecture has been proved ?

The received message : Dear Fellows,

my investigation on the Riemann Hypothesis is definitely complete. You can read the related article mentioned above here


Also, you can find a new set of primes which depends on the last digit of the prime numbers (1,3,7,9). Then, you can jump from prime to prime, like a tree. I have discovered the relation between the distribution of the primes and they last digit when I was 12 years old.

For the music of primes see here:


For the abc-conjecture proof please see here:


Best Regards and my best wishes for 2018.

Thierno M. SOW

    $\begingroup$ I read the word "spam" and I'm quite vary of following any links related. Are the papers published in peer reviewed journals? Could you provide a reference instead of the links? $\endgroup$ – Yuriy S Jan 26 '18 at 23:37
  • $\begingroup$ Try to check the montioned paper, i said spam message because we are talking about a hard problem in mathematics, i have checked the two papers , but i don't know if these papers are published in any refereed journal $\endgroup$ – zeraoulia rafik Jan 26 '18 at 23:39

    $\begingroup$ First impression: "discovered... when I was 12 years old" definitely reminds me of this from en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crank_(person) : "stress that they have been working out their ideas for many decades, and claim that this fact alone entails that their belief cannot be dismissed as resting upon some simple error." $\endgroup$ – Daniel Schepler Jan 26 '18 at 23:59

The "proof" presented in the pdf is the following statement: $$ \frac{1}{2}+\frac{1}{p^{s}-1}=\zeta(s) $$ Where $s \in \mathbb{C}$ and $p$ prime. This already contains a mistake (a typo) and makes no sense as is. The author meant $$\prod^\infty_{k=1}\left(\frac{1}{2}+\frac{1}{p^{s}_k-1}\right)=\zeta(s)$$ As it is stated on his mathoverflow profile. This "corrected" statement does not prove the hypothesis and it is also false. (for example for positive $s$, the factors don't converge to $1$ but to $1/2$, so the infinite product must be $0$)
