The Mystery of Numbers
Prof. Sarah Zerbes
University College London
24th April 2019
As a number theorist, I am interested in the properties of the natural numbers, by which I mean the numbers 1, 2, 3 etc. These numbers are of course very easy to define; however, their properties are very complicated, and they have puzzled mathematicians since the time of Pythagoras. Prof. Zerbes will describe some questions which may seem trivial at first sight, but which are the focus of current research.
