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. Please join us for a special screening of the film with commentary by Stanford mathematician Keith Devlin, NPR’s “Math Guy.”
