I have an unfinished paper on some of my older computers. I suppose it is retrievable. See my url, in the bookmark, for Watkins website "Inexplicable secret of creation", I guess you know the site. It contains an archive on links between number theory and physics, but none entry from metamathematics yet. Many thanks for the references below. Quite good books indeed. I agree with you: if we read only one, the best is probably John Derbyshire. But Sabbagh candid book is very charming. And I like very much the du Sautoy book. He is an actor in that field. I have also a "knot theory" TOE, and there is already connections between (multi-)zeta function (and thus the primes), knot theory, and quantum field theory. Knots, like qubits gives some role to the third dimensional spaces. Note however that even if the primes justify the arithmetical existence of a Universal Unitary Transformation (alias Universal Quantum Dovetailer), the comp mind-body would not yet been solved, it remains to show that that unitary transformation wins the 1-3 person white rabbit problems, which makes necessary to take into account the "lobianness" of the platonist observers. > > There were three very good recent books on The Riemann Hypothesis: > > 'The Riemann Hypothesis: The Greatest Unsolved Problem in Mathematics' > (Karl Sabbagh) > http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0374250073/ > > 'The Music of the Primes : Searching to Solve the Greatest Mystery in > Mathematics' > (Marcus du Sautoy) > http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0060935588/sr=8-1/qid=1143725579/ > > 'Prime Obsession: Bernhard Riemann and the Greatest Unsolved Problem in > Mathematics' > (John Derbyshire) > http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0309085497/ > > The first book in the list (Karl Sabbagh) gives a popular over-view and > a good insight into the social aspects of mathematical research. > > The second book in the list (du Sautoy) gives a popular over-view and > an excellent exposition of the historial aspects of the problem. > > The third book (Derbyshire) is probably the best.
