SIMUW 2012 -- The Riemann Hypothesis and the Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer Conjecture


Course Goals

  • Learn the powerful free open source math software system Sage.
  • Learn what the Riemann Hypothesis really is, and much interesting mathematics along the way: prime numbers, Fourier series, some advanced Calculus, and more.
  • Learn what the Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer conjecture states, and something about what is known about it.


  • You must be logged into in order for clicking on the worksheet links below create a worksheet!
  • Clicking on the link creates a brand '''new''' worksheet. If you then edit it, you'll find your modified worksheet in your home screen.
