The Riemann Hypothesis states that the non-trivial zeros of the Zeta function all have real part
one-half. The Hilbert-Polya conjecture states that the imaginary parts of the zeros of the Zeta
function corresponds to eigenvalues of an unbounded self adjoint operator.
In [BeM] some evidence is presented that the eigenvalues are energy levels, that is eigenvalues of
a hermitian quantum (“Riemann”) operator associated with the classical hamiltonian
Hcl ( x, p)  xp ,
where x is the (one-dimensional) position coordinate and y the conjugate momentum.
From [DeJ] 18, VII, we recall “The non-trivial zeros of Riemann's zeta function arise from inquiries
into the distribution of prime numbers. The eigenvalues of a random hermitian matrix arise from
inquiries into the behavior of systems of subatomic particles under the laws of quantum mechanics.
What on earth does the distribution of prime numbers have to do with the behavior of subatomic
particles?"
All attempts failed so far to represent the Riemann duality equation in the critical stripe as
convergent Mellin transforms of an underlying self-adjoint integral operator equation.
The solution idea to answer the RH is about this:
two self-adjoint, bounded (singular integral) operators with appropriate Hilbert space
domains to enable proof P1 and proof P2.

Proof 1
The Poisson summation formula applied to the Gauss-Weierstrass density function
f ( x) : ex
2
enables the proof of the Jacobi’s   relation xG( x)  G(1 / x) for the Theta function

G ( x) : 1   ( x 2 ) :  f (nx) .

Let M denote the Mellin transform then it holds
M  f ( s ) 
1 s / 2 s .

( )

2
The natural statement of the functional equation is the symmetric duality equation ([EdH], 1.6)
(*)
 (s)M  f (s)   (1  s)M  f (1  s) .
Multiplying by s( s  1) and putting
1
2
s
2
 ( s) : s( s  1) ( s) ( )  s / 2
leads to the Riemann duality equation in the form
 (s)   (s)(s 1)M xf ( x)(s)   (1  s) , s  C .
Due to the corresponding property of the Hilbert transform the functions f , f H are identical in a
weak L2 (, )  sense, i.e. it holds
f

0
 fH
2
0


2
respectively
( f ,  )  ( f H ,  )   L2 (, ) .
From this it follows the identity
Fs : M  f (s)  M  f H (s) : FsH
in the sense of distributional complex-valued functions ([PeB] I.15).
2
There is an only formally valid representation of Riemann’s duality equation as transform of an
integral operator in the form ([EdH], 10.3):
(**)  (s)  s  1 x1 sG( x) dx   x1 sG( x) dx  .

does not converge for any s. The integral (**) would converge if the constant term
f (0)  fˆ (0)  1
is absent.
In order to overcome this issue to build series representation of  (s) as an even function of
Riemann introduced the auxiliary function ([EdH] 10.3)
H ( x) :

The Hilbert transform “spirits away” the jeopardizing constant Fourier series term ([PeB] Example
9.11)], i.e. the related Theta function G H has a vanishing constant term.
The Hilbert transform of the function f (x) is given by ([GrI] 3.952, 7.612, 9.21-9.23)

to build a modified functional equation, being valid in a weak sense, but with same set of Zeta
function zeros.
With density arguments in combination with Hardy ‘s theorem ([EdH] 11.1), (the number of zeros of
the Zeta function on the critical line is infinite) the weak functional equation is then also valid in a
strong sense.
The prize to be paid is a RH analysis in a weak L2 (, )  Hilbert space framework and (weak)
variational representations of affected functions and dual integral operator equations. As this is
anyway the natural framework to deal with singular integral operators the prize seems to be more
than adequate.

Proof 2
The same idea of proof 1 can also be applied to the fractional part function in an alternative Hilbert
space framework ([KBr]):
Let H  L*2 () with  : S 1 ( R 2 ) , i.e.  is the boundary of the unit sphere. Let u (s) being a
2  periodic function and  denotes the integral from 0 to 2 in the Cauchy-sense. Then for
u  H : L2 () with  : S 1 ( R2 ) and for real  Fourier coefficients and norms are defined by

Then the Fourier coefficients of the convolution operator

u ( y)dy :  k ( x  y )u ( y)dy

and D( A)  H A  H 1 / 2 () .
are given by

The prize to be paid is a RH analysis in a weak H #1 / 2 (0,1)  Hilbert space framework ([PeB] I, §15,
appendix) and (weak) variational representations of affected functions and dual integral operator
equations (which is anyway the natural framework to deal with singular integral operators and
spectral theory):

Proof 3+ proposals based on alternative Li-function
The Li-function is defined by ([GrI] xxxviii)
li ( x)  Ei (ln x)
x 1
with

Ei ( x)    e t

According to P1 we define alternatively

 H ( x) : F ( x)1F1 ( ; , x)  
n 0

.
As it holds
2n (  x ) n
 e x
n!
n  0 2n  1

 2 xF ( x)  
this motivates the following alternative definition


EiH ( x) : 2 dF  

We claim that the related Li-function overcomes current challenges to prove the RH by related “Lifunction convergence” criteria.

Proofs 4+ proposals based on P1/P2 Hilbert space frameworks
The degenerated hypergeometric function allows the definition of an alternative series
representation of the Zeta function, alternatively with respect to Riemann’s Zeta function and to
Polya’s Zeta fake function, ([EdH], 1.8, 12.5):

 ( z )  2 (u ) cos(( zu)du .
0
It enables the application of corresponding Polya criteria ([PoG]) for other proofs of the RH.
In the context of the odd (!) function

we refer to the approach in [CaD] (based on [PoG1]) in the framework of Laguerre-Polya class
functions with special functions of genus >1 and its Weierstrass factorization form. The results of
[SeA] provides the corresponding nonzero real numbers condition that


 .
The Hilbert transforms of P1 and P2 define appropriate kernels of integral operators with
corresponding domains and ranges defined in appropriate Hilbert spaces. The corresponding
orthogonal systems of the related Hilbert spaces enable the definition of alternative Fourier integral
representations of the Zeta function itself. For the integral operators of P1 and P2 the following
polynomial systems are proposed:
P1: The Hilbert transformed Hermite polynomials
P2: The Lommel polynomials ([DDi], [WaG] 9-7).

E. For the linkage of variational theory to holomorphic function in the distribution sense we
recall from [BPe] chapter I §15 the
Definition: Let z  g z be a function defined on a open subset U  C with values in the
distribution space. Then g z is called a holomorphic in U  C (or g ( z ) : g z is called
holomorphic in U  C in the distribution sense), if for each   C c the function z  ( g s ,  ) is
holomorphic in U  C in the usual sense.
