Bryna Kra - Patterns and Disorder | Math Encounters (4:00)

 Registration is closed for this event
If a set of numbers is large, does it have to contain any patterns? Just how large does a set need to be, to contain interesting configurations? Do specific sets of integers, such as the primes, contain hidden patterns? Come explore all this and more with mathematician Bryna Kra, as she discusses the difference between structure and randomness.

Math Encounters is a public presentation series celebrating the spectacular world of mathematics and presented by the Simons Foundation and the National Museum of Mathematics.
