A Nigerian University Lecturer, Dr Opeyemi Enoch
has attain great feat by successfully resolved the
156 years old Riemann Hypothesis,considered to
be the most important problem in Mathematics
by providing a Proof.
Dr Enoch, who teaches at the Federal University,
Oye Ekiti (FUOYE), attained the feat ,thus
become the fourth egghead to resolve one of the
seven Millennium Problems in Mathematics.
According to statement in Ado Ekiti yesterday,
the don’s presentation of the Proof on November
11, 2015 during the International Conference on
Mathematics and Computer Science in Vienna,
Austria becomes more symbolic coming on the
exact day and month 156 years after the problem
was delivered by a German Mathematician in
The Riemann Zeta Hypothesis is one of the
seven Millennium problems set forth by the Clay
Mathematics Institute with a million Dollar reward
for each solved problem for the past 16 years.
According to the statement, “Dr Enoch first
investigated and then established the claims of
Riemann. He went on to Consider and to correct
the misconceptions that were communicated by
Mathematicians in the past generations, thus
paving way for his solutions and proofs to be
“He also showed how other problems of this kind
can be formulated and obtained the matrix that
Hilbert and Poly predicted will give these
undiscovered solutions. He revealed how these
solutions are applicable in cryptography, quantum
information science and in quantum computers,”
Three of the problems had been solved and the
prizes given to the winners. This makes it the
fourth to be solved of all the seven problems.
The Kogi State-born scholar had, before now,
worked on mathematical models and structures
for generating electricity from sound, thunder
and Oceanic bodies.
The Mathematician previously designed a
Prototype of a silo for peasant farmers and also
discovered a scientific technique for detecting
and tracking someone on an evil mission.
Enoch has succeeded in inventing methods by
which oil pipelines can be protected from
vandalism and he is currently working on
Mathematical approaches to Climate Change.
