Counting from Infinity: A Special Film Screening with Keith Devlin

Keith Devlin, Mathematician, Stanford University

In April 2013, a little-known lecturer — working in isolation — proved something that rocked the mathematical world. Yitang Zhang’s insight into one of the great challenges of number theory, the Twin Prime Conjecture, is beautifully portrayed in the new film Counting From Infinity.

Join us as we view a special screening of the film with NPR’s “Math Guy” and Stanford mathematician Keith Devlin alongside for expert commentary.
