If you have a question about this talk, please contact . (Talk is free for members, £2 for non-members) Apparently simple questions about adding whole numbers have led to some beautiful mathematics, involving ideas that at first sight seem to have nothing to do with the integers. In this talk, we’ll get a flavour of this area, and we’ll see how two great Cambridge mathematicians from the last century played a key role. We’ll also see an application of the important fact that 1 is the smallest positive integer. This talk is part of the The Archimedeans (CU Mathematical Society) series. ## This talk is included in these lists:- Centre for Mathematical Sciences (CMS)
