“What is the sum 1 + 1/4 + 1/9 + 1/16 + … ?” 

Professor Pearson will attempt to do justice to Euler’s remarkable genius
in explaining his clever solution to this problem, and he will also discuss
how this problem gave rise to one of the most important unsolved
problems in mathematics today . . . and what all of this has to do with
internet security.

Students in Calc 2 or above will have studied the important background
material for this talk, but students at all levels of math are invited to come and learn about this interesting story in the history of mathematics.
