Four Proofs of the Infinitude of Primes

Tuesday, Sep 27, 12:30 pm
1146 Ingersoll Hall, Brooklyn College

Abstract: We will discuss one of the most beautiful theorems in all of mathematics – the infinitude of primes. We will give four proofs with variations: Euclid's indirect proof, Euler's analytic proof, Furstenberg's topological proof, and Chaitin's complexity proof. These proofs reflect, to some degree, the evolution of techniques in number theory and in mathematical proofs in general.
