# The Riemann Zeros as Spectrum and the Riemann Hypothesis

@article{Sierra2019TheRZ, title={The Riemann Zeros as Spectrum and the Riemann Hypothesis}, author={Germ{\'a}n Sierra}, journal={Symmetry}, year={2019}, volume={11}, pages={494} }

We present a spectral realization of the Riemann zeros based on the propagation of a massless Dirac fermion in a region of Rindler spacetime and under the action of delta function potentials localized on the square free integers. The corresponding Hamiltonian admits a self-adjoint extension that is tuned to the phase of the zeta function, on the critical line, in order to obtain the Riemann zeros as bound states. The model suggests a proof of the Riemann hypothesis in the limit where the…
