Recently, while looking for articles and documents to learn about the Riemann Hyopthesis, I came across a strange funny document of a chinese "mathematician" called Jiang Chun-Xuang who claimed to have disproved the RH, and he also said to have proved the Fermat's Last Theorem, before Wiles; the Golbach's Conjecture and more things.

This is not the first time I see how there is some people who have claimed to have solved problems without solving them, e.g. Chun-Xuang uses Euler's product in the critical strip without being it valid there.

So, what is my point? I am planning to write an article in which putting together all these people together, analyzing them and showing what is the difference between real mathematicians and these pseudo-mathematicians. In this way a confrontation is made in order to help people distinguish a person who really uses mathematics and someone who use mathematics only in appearance.

Thus I am interested in producing a list with all these people in order to have a good amount of examples before starting with my article.

published worksdiscussing mathematical charlatans, rather than just names. But you should probably try discussing any revision on meta first. – Artie Prendergast-Smith Apr 5 '13 at 16:30
