ZetaGrid is a platform-agnostic, open source grid architecture currently working on a proof for the Riemann 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.
