Abstract

The basic idea is to expand the completed zeta function $\xi(s)$ in MacLaurin series (infinite polynomial), which can be further expressed as infinite product (Hadamard product) by conjugate complex roots. Finally, the functional equation $\xi(s)=\xi(1-s)$ leads to $(s-\alpha_i)^2 = (1-s-\alpha_i)^2, i \in \mathbb{N}$ with solution $\alpha_i= \frac{1}{2}, i \in \mathbb{N}$, where $\alpha_i$ are the real parts of the zeros of $\xi(s)$, i.e., $s_i =\alpha_i\pm j\beta_i, i\in \mathbb{N}$. Therefore, a proof of the Riemann Hypothesis is achieved.

Comment: In the previous version, the key point is to prove the Riemann Hypothesis through the infinite polynomial equation deduced by $\xi(s)=\xi(1-s)$. In this updated version (Version 9), the key point is to prove the Riemann Hypothesis through the infinite product equation deduced by $\xi(s)=\xi(1-s)$, which is more concise and easy to understand.
