If there was an RH version of these criteria, this proof would fail several of them: https://www.scottaaronson.com/blog/?p=458

While it's highly unlikely to ever be proven by someone outside of the traditional academic circles (and in less than 20 pages...), how depressing would be be if they'd actually succeeded and 5+ years later, no one's bothered to confirm it? For all we know, an error was discovered when this was submitted for peer review, but we'd have no way of knowing that.

Oh please. There are so many of these out there. How about you go through all of these and tell us why this one is any different: http://integers.hatenablog.com/entry/2017/08/30/023144


I guess if it was legit we would've heard about it by now.

...Or no one is prepared to stick his neck out [yet].
