This section aims to mathematicians and non-mathematicians equally and collects some noteworthy material on the web related to maths. Non-english articles are tagged according to their language, while pieces which are presumably less interesting for non-mathematicians are marked with an additional triangle [∆]

## V I D E O S

The Riemann Hypothesis, explained; arguably the most famous unsolved problem in the history of mathematics

Collatz' conjecture; a notoriously difficult problem understandable by an 8th grader; none of the ~300 quintillion numbers (that is, a 3 with 18 zeros) which have been tested across 5000 computers disproved the conjecture.
