Today, on the 10th of April, Washington University is hosting an undergraduate lecture as part of the Loeb Lectures in Mathematics annual series. SLU mathematics students have been invited to attend the lecture by Professor Melanie Matchett Wood from the University of Wisconsin. It is called “The Chemistry of Primes”, and will talk about just that: prime numbers. The abstract is given here, which basically describes the lecture as an overview of prime numbers and some interesting things about them; I’m excited because prime numbers are one of the coolest trinkets in mathematics! This is an awesome opportunity and I will update you on how it goes.
