I have always found union closed conjecture very interesting. There is an arxiv article claiming the solve the problem. My background is not appropriate to read the proof. Is this proof verified or wrong? Any comment would be appreciated.

The article was submitted in 2015 and it is not too long(about ten pages). Thus, I expect that it should be verified until now.

    $\begingroup$ My first reaction to this question, upon looking at the paper: "Well, it's just a ten page paper. Why not just check it?". And then I scrolled down to the second page and horrified, closed the paper. $\endgroup$ – tomasz Apr 2 '17 at 22:04

    $\begingroup$ Vladimir Blinovsky also recently posted a 3 page proof of the Riemann Hypothesis on the arXiv arxiv.org/abs/1703.03827 $\endgroup$ – Tony Huynh Apr 3 '17 at 23:54

There is a recent thesis by André da Cruz Carvalho on this conjecture. It discusses the paper by Vladimir Blinovsky and shows why his proof does not work (page 16). NB: I have not read it carefully, and this refers to the first version of Blinovsky's paper.

    $\begingroup$ Has anyone checked if the criticism still applies to the current and 7th version of the paper? $\endgroup$ – HeinrichD Apr 2 '17 at 19:16
