# Michael Rassias

**Michael (Michail) Th. Rassias** (Greek: Μιχαήλ Θ. Ρασσιάς; born 3 August 1987 in Athens) is a Greek mathematician whose research is devoted to mathematical analysis and analytic number theory.^{[pub 1]}^{[pub 2]} He is a Latsis Foundation Senior Fellow at the University of Zurich. He has studied mathematics and conducted research at the University of Cambridge, ETH-Zurich, Princeton University, the University of Zurich, and the Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton. While he was doing postdoctoral research at Princeton University, he collaborated with John Forbes Nash Jr. for the preparation of the book *Open Problems in Mathematics*.^{[1]}^{[pub 3]}^{[pub 4]}

Rassias has extensively collaborated with Helmut Maier with whom he has worked on questions associated to the Estermann and Riemann zeta functions and the Nyman-Beurling criterion on the Riemann Hypothesis involving the distribution of certain cotangent sums.^{[pub 1]}^{[pub 5]} Maier and Rassias have also investigated large gaps between consecutive prime numbers containing perfect powers of prime numbers extending work of Kevin Ford, Ben Joseph Green, Sergei Konyagin, James Maynard and Terence Tao.^{[pub 2]}

He has also collaborated in published work with Preda Mihăilescu, Gradimir Milovanovic, Hugh Lowell Montgomery and Carl Pomerance.
Since 2017 M. Th. Rassias is a member of the editorial board of the Newsletter of the European Mathematical Society in charge of the *Solved and Unsolved Problems * column.^{[pub 6]}
