2013 Fall Conference at Monterey, Dec 13-14

The 41st Annual Fall Conference was held in Monterey on Dec, 13-14 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel and Spa.

Saturday Keynote Speaker: Brian Conrey, American Institute of Mathematics
Primes and Zeros: A Million Dollar Mystery

Just over 150 years ago, Bernhard Riemann proposed a hypothesis that would explain a great regularity in the occurrence of prime numbers. But to this day we have been unable to prove Riemann's Hypothesis. In this talk we will give some of the colorful history and anecdotes that surround this most important unsolved problem in all of mathematics.
