Abstract: A zero-density theorem is an upper bound on the number of zeros of the zeta function in a rectangle in the critical strip. We will prove one such estimate that implies, in particular, that zero percent of the zeta function's zeros have real part greater than A, for any A > 1/2. We will see how the proof uses a mollifier, that is, a function that pretends to behave like 1/zeta.
