## Interesting facts about Bernhard Riemann

Few of the Interesting things about him:

• Riemann has tried to prove many theories that were not been solved by many scientists.
• He died even before he could solve his own hypothesis. It is said that his hypothesis was been found by his son.
• It is said that Riemann hypothesis has been solved after almost 160 years.

## Mathematicians like Riemann

Few of the Mathematicians like Carl Friedrich Gauss, Georg Cantor, David Hilbert also originated from the same place.

Among the Reimann, Leonhard Euler, Pierre-Simon Laplace, Daniel Bernoulli are also few of the Mathematicians who are from 18th Century has done a great job in the field of Mathematics.

## Awards and Rewards under the name of Bernhard Riemann

Few of the Rewards given to Riemann

1. Lunar features Crater Riemann
2. Fellow of the Royal Society 1866

### What is Bernhard Riemann famous for?

Riemann has done a great contribution to geometry. For Albert Einstein’s theory of relativity, He set the mathematical foundation.

### What did Bernhard Riemann discover?

Riemann found that in four spatial dimensions, one needs a collection of ten numbers at each point to describe the properties of a manifold, no matter how distorted it is. This is the famous construction central to his geometry, known now as a Riemannian metric.

### Where did Bernhard Riemann live?

Riemann was born in Germany. He even stayed in the Kingdom of Hanover.

### Is the Riemann hypothesis solved?

It is said that Sir Michael Atiyah, a notable mathematician has solved the hypothesis.

### When was Riemann born?

17 September 1826, In the Kingdom of Hanover, Riemann was born.

### How did Riemann die?

July 20, 1866, Bernhard Riemann due to tuberculosis on in Selasca, Italy. He was just 39 years old at that time.
