Towards a Proof of the Riemann Hypothesis (RH)

RiemannI shall report in a series of articles my investigation on the famous 150 years old conjecture made by Bernhard Riemann (1826-1866) in 1859. The purposes of the reports are threefold: First, this writing effort will force me to study thoroughly prior arts on this subject, which should help my research towards a possible proof of the Riemann hypothesis (RH). Second, when I submit new results to mathematical journals and/or post them on arXiv (an online publication website) , I can refer to these articles on my website as for the background information, which will allow my journal paper(s) to be more concise than would be, otherwise. Third, if I am successful in compiling prior arts and my own results in a cohesive manner, this series of articles will serve as core materials for a book or monograph.

Furthermore, I hope that this series will stimulate some readers and make them interested in this fascinating and profound subject.
