"In 1859, Bernhard Riemann published a paper titled "On the number of Primes less than a Given Magnitude" in which the Riemann Hypothesis first appears. The results of this paper rely heavily on the work of Leonhard Euler of a century earlier. Most of the relevant work of Euler is accessible to undergraduates who have completed a year of Calculus."
Gary Towsley received his math Ph.D. at the University of Rochester and now teaches at SUNY, Geneseo. He is one of this year's winners of the national Deborah and Franklin Tepper Haimo Award for Distinguished College or University Teaching of Mathematics !!
