On the hypothesis that the ( 2 𝑘 ) th moments of the Hardy 𝑍 -function are correctly predicted by random matrix theory and the moments of the derivative of 𝑍 are correctly predicted by the derivative of the characteristic polynomials of unitary matrices, we establish new large spaces between the zeros of the Riemann zeta-function by employing some Wirtinger-type inequalities. In particular, it is obtained that Λ ( 1 5 ) 6 . 1 3 9 2 which means that consecutive nontrivial zeros often differ by at least 6.1392 times the average spacing.
