The Music of the Primes

A review of The Music of the Primes by Rob Mason

Regardless of your background, if you have any curiosity about what the world of mathematics is really about (as opposed to how it seemed at school), this DVD may be the introduction for you. Some of the maths are difficult but the history and storytelling paints a convincing (and appealing) picture of the world of professional mathematics. The film which is introduced by Marcus du Sautoy, includes details of the  Riemann hypothesis which implies results about the distribution of prime numbers.

A prime number (or a prime) is a natural number greater than 1 that has no positive divisors other than 1 and itself.
