In a statement released by the Federal University, Oye Ekiti (FUOYE), Nigerian lecturer Dr Enoch Opeyemi, who has previously worked on mathematical models for generating electricity from sound, thunder and Oceanic bodies, has become the fourth person in the world to resolve the Mathematics problem called the Riemann Hypothesis.
This hypothesis is one of the seven Millennium Problems in Mathematics presented to the public by the Clay Mathematics Institute and provision of a solution comes with a $1million prize.
Dr Enoch presented the proof on November 11, 2015 at the International Conference on Mathematics and Computer Science held in Vienna, Austria, the same day which marked 156 years since the problem was presented by a German Mathematician in 1859.
“Dr Enoch first investigated and then established the claims of Riemann,” the school’s statement read. “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 established.”
“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.”
Only three people have been able to solve three out of the seven millennium problems in the past 16 years. Dr Enoch is the fourth.
Some of Dr Enoch’s work includes designing a prototype of a silo for farmers, discovering scientific ways of detecting and tracking people, and inventing methods by which oil pipelines can be protected from vandalism.
He is currently working on mathematical approaches to climate change.
