Number Theory   Disproof of the Riemann Hypothesis, Long Version

Authors: Igor Hrnčić

In this manuscript we use the Perron formula to connect zeta evaluated on the root free halfplane to zeta evaluated on the critical strip. This is possible since the Perron formula is of the form f(s)=O f(s+w) with O being an integral operator. The variable s+w is on the root free halfplane, and yet s can be on the critical strip. Hence, the Perron formula serves as a form of a functional equation that connects the critical strip with the root free halfplane. Then, one simply notices that in the Perron formula, the left hand side converges only conditionally, whilst the right hand side converges absolutely. This, of course, cannot be, since the left side of an equation is always equal to the right side. This contradiction when examined in detail disproves the Riemann hypothesis. This method is employed on an arbitrary distribution of zeta roots as well, concluding that zeta has a root arbitrarily close to the vertical line passing through unity.
