Riemann's 1859 article starts off well by referring to two of Euler's brilliant creations, firstly the prime product formula equalling the Harmonic series whose fractions can be raised to any power, secondly the cotangent series generating the zeta evaluations where the powers are positive integers. However after this, Riemann introduces lots of incorrect relationships so that the final result is highly unreliable. The best way to study primes is to investigate composites which Riemann never mentions.
