Goldbach's conjecture webinar

We had a webinar talk on Goldbach's conjecture on January 23 2015, given by Stijn Hanson. You can now watch it here.

Back in 1742, Christian Goldbach wrote a letter to Euler suggesting that every even number could be written as the sum of two prime numbers. This is a notoriously unsolved problem but we endeavour to explain the machinery behind three of the best results we have towards understanding this famous conjecture and talk about some of the speaker's own work.
