Uncle Petros and Goldbach's Conjecture: A Novel of Mathematical Obsession
by Apostolos Doxiadis

What happens when a mathematical prodigy devotes his life to proving one of the greatest mathematical challenges of all time?  In Uncle Petros and Goldbach's Conjecture: A Novel of Mathematical Obsession by Apostolos Doxiadis, Petros Papachristos's obsession with Goldbach's Conjecture — the deceptively simple claim that every even number greater than two is the sum of two primes — has come to define his life.  Now an old man, he is looked on with suspicion and shame by his family — until his ambitious young nephew intervenes.  As uncle and nephew deepen their bond, this novel unravels a dramatic mathematical tale set against a tableau of brilliant historical figures including G. H. Hardy, Srinivasa Ramanujan, and a young Kurt Gödel.  Join Tween Primes to discuss this book and how far you would go to prove you're right.

This is a live-streamed event.  Occasional video recordings are made available for a fee at videos.momath.org.
