ZetaGrid is a platform-agnostic, open source grid architecture currently working on a proof for the
Hypothesis, one of the most important unsolved problems in modern
mathematics. The problem, which deals with the distribution of prime
numbers, has remained unsolved since 1859 despite significant prizes that were offered for its solution. A solution could lead to a simple
method for determining whether a number is a prime. The fact that there is
no simple method is the underpinning of most current encryption schemes.
The ZetaGrid client acts locally as a screen saver, and is available for Linux, AIX and
Windows 95/98/Me/2000/NT/XP. It requires Java Runtime
Environment 1.2.2 or later.
