The Riemann Hypothesis for is the assertion that the nontrivial zeros of lie on the critical line. For historical reasons there are names given to the Riemann hypothesis for various sets of -functions. For example, the Generalized Riemann Hypothesis (GRH) is the Riemann Hypothesis for all Dirichlet $L$-functions. More examples collected below.

In certain applications there is a fundamental distinction
between nontrivial zeros on the real axis and
nontrivial zeros with a positive imaginary part.
Here we use the adjective *modified* to indicate
a Riemann Hypothesis except for the possibility
of nontrivial zeros on the real axis. Thus, the
Modified Generalized Riemann Hypothesis (MGRH) is
the assertion that all nontrivial zeros of
Dirichlet $L$-functions lie either on the
critical line or on the real axis.

Nontrivial zeros which are very close to the point are called Landau-Siegel zeros.
