The 33rd ORESME meeting will be held on Fri-Sat, January 31-February 1, at Northern Kentucky University.
We will continue our consideration of the work of Bernhard Riemann by reading the following works:
Foundations for a general theory of functions of a complex variable (Grundlagen für eine allgemeine Theorie der Functionen einer veränderlichen complexen Grösse, Inauguraldissertation, Göttingen, 1851) [his dissertation, in which he introduces the concept of a Riemann surface];
On the number of prime numbers less than a given quantity (Über die Anzahl der Primzahlen unter einer gegebenen Grösse, Monatsberichte der Berliner Akademie, 1859.) [in which his celebrated zeta function is introduced, and the Riemann Hypothesis first stated].
The first of these papers also comes from the Baker/Christensen/Orde translation, while the second was posted online by David Wilkins at his website
which is devoted to the mathematical papers of Riemann.
