Statistical Analyses of Values of the Riemann Zeta Function; Minnesota Internet Traffic Studies

These researchers’ main project is to obtain numerical data to check some conjectures connecting the Riemann zeta function from pure number theory and random matrices that arise in quantum chaos studies. The researchers have a database of over 20 billion zeros of the Riemann zeta functions and related values, most near zero number 1023. They are now analyzing the data.

Another project, Minnesota Internet Traffic Studies (MINTS), which uses various MSI databases, monitors Internet traffic trends. Current results can be seen at the MINTS webpage,
