15 February 2010 16:15 in CM 107
In 2009 the Riemann hypothesis become 150 years old. In this talk we want to remind on Riemann and his famous paper which led to the yet unsolved hypothesis which carries his name. His paper had a huge impact on the development of number theory and in particular, on the development of the theory of L-functions. We shall try to indicate this by various examples.
