Abstract/Media

Is there a formula for the primes? Can you identify a prime quickly if
you see one? How many primes are there? (A precise enough answer to
this question is worth a million dollars!) Are there magic squares of
primes? What patterns can you make with primes? In this talk we will
discuss these questions and many more.

The speaker will be happy to try to answer any questions that members
of the audience might have about primes.
