DESCRIPTION:Math Encounters &mdash\; Online:\n \n &ldquo\;Numb
er Theory Problems: From Easy to Undecidable"\
;\n with Bjorn Poonen\n \n Wednesday\, August 5 at
4:00 pm EDT (New York)\n \n Rational numbers are
fractions such as -2/7. \; It turns out that t
he circle x2+y2=3 has no points whose coordinates
are rational numbers\, while the circle x2+y2=5 ha
s infinitely many. \; Why do these equations b
ehave so differently? \; What about more compl
icated equations: is there a method to decide whet
her there are any solutions in rational numbers?&n
bsp\; Join Bjorn Poonen\, Distinguished Professor
in Science at MIT\, as a search for answers leads
to questions about prime numbers\, geometry\, and
problems that a computer will never be able to sol
ve.\n \n Special introduction by C. Kenneth Fan\,
President of Girls&rsquo\; Angle.\n \n This is a l
