I would like to tell you today about a subject which, although I have not worked in it myself, has always extraordinarily captivated me, and which has fascinated mathematicians from the earliest times until the present namely, the question of the distribution of prime numbers. You certainly all know what a prime number is: it is a natural number bigger than 1 which is divisible by no other natural number except for I. That at least is the number theorist's definition; other mathematicians… Expand
