      About a year and a half ago Louis de Branges put a
      proposes proof of the Riemann Hypothesis on his
      website and it was immediately dismissed, without a
      second look.
      Fair enough, the man has made some mistakes in the
      past, but he also proved Bieberbach, contrary to
      popular opinion at the time.
      It is held as truth that his theory of Hilbert spaces
      of entire functions can not produce a proof. But does
      anyone ever consider the following: His theory deals
      also with some aspects of the theory of special
      funcitons. Special funcitons, in turn, play a role in
      the theory of the unitary Gaussian ensemble in quantum
      theory, one of the 'more promising' routes to a proof
      of RH. Is it then such a long shot that he could be
      right?
      A two new papers are available on his site

      www.math.purdue.edu/~branges/

      and it is much more readable than the one he had on before.
