The Riemann Hypothesis is regarded as the most important problem in all of mathematics. It is the only problem to be on David Hilbert's list of 23 problems for twentieth century mathematicians to work on and also on the list of millenium problems for twenty-first century mathematicians to work on. Unfortunately, we still haven't got a clue how to do it! In an effort to begin recruiting a new generation of people to think about it, I am bringing this problem before the young people of BAMA in the hopes that they may someday find the missing idea.

Brian Conrey is the Director of the American Institute of Mathematics (AIM). The mission of AIM is to solve important mathematics problems through focused collaborative research. Each year AIM organizes 24 focused workshops that bring together mathematicians from around the world to collaborate on the important mathematical questions of our time. Conrey's main area of research is in number theory, especially the analytic theory of L-functions.

How to get to San Jose State University:

From 101 take the First street or Guadalupe Expressway exit and go to Fourth Street. Take Fourth to San Salvador Street; turn left onto San Salvador and park in the Seventh Street garage ($2.00). There is also a garage with free parking near the library. The Engineering building is on San Fernando between Seventh and Eighth Streets.

From highway 280 take the 7-th street exit and turn left on Seventh Street. The garage is on the left after 5 or 6 blocks.

The Engineering building is on San Fernando between 7-th and 8-th

Streets.
