“Prime Numbers”

 

 

Do the prime numbers go on forever? How many primes are there less than 1 million? How large and small can the gaps between two prime numbers be? In this talk, you’ll find out what we do and don’t know about these questions. You’ll hear about some unsolved problems that can earn you money if you solve them, and some very recent work (including results proved this month).
