I'm a former student in physics fond of number theory, especially Hilbert's 8th problem, further generalizations of the Riemann Hypothesis and almost everything related to prime numbers and L Functions. I'm also interested in Galois Theory even though I still don't know much about it.

comment What are some mathematical concepts that were (pretty much) created from scratch and do not owe a debt to previous work?
Galois correspondence?

comment What are some mathematical concepts that were (pretty much) created from scratch and do not owe a debt to previous work?
What physicists do is very similar in spirit to the original sketches mangakas sometimes show at the bitter end of a compiled volume, while the mathematicians accomplish the final job drawing each scene with almost perfect accuracy, adding ink (sometimes by harassing their assistants) and so on. So we need both physicists and mathematicians to draw (and read!) great mathematical mangas...

comment About Goldbach's conjecture
Thank you very much Todd, both for your work and for increasing my English vocabulary (I didn't know the verbs to mangle and to iron out). I fixed the few minor remaining mistakes, hope everything's clear now.

comment A natural way of thinking of the definition of an Artin $L$-function?
@Will Sawin: do you mean a representation of $\mathbb{Z}$ or $\mathbb{Z}_{p}$ (or even $\hat{\mathbb{Z}}$)? My not-that-smartphone displays $\mathbb{Z}$ or $\mathbb{Z}$, which just can't be what you mean.

Neutral (like templum) in the first case and masculine (like dominus) in the second one? I didn't expect to find Latin lessons on MO...

comment Re: Mordell's Equation $y^2 = x^3 + k$ and Perfect Numbers
@Arnie: if you ever need some non trivial consequence of BSD conjecture in your research, you might be interested in mathoverflow.net/questions/149815/… where I give a few ideas about the weak version thereof (equality of the two kinds of ranks). Hope it helps.

comment Knuth's intuition that Goldbach might be unprovable
And still, as René Thom used to say, there is no rigorous definition of the notion of rigor.
