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.

FAQ About Bernhard Riemann

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.
