Description

In this presentation, we explore two branches of mathematics, abstract algebra and number theory, and a curious bridge connecting the two fields. The talk will be broken up to answer the following questions:

-What exactly does a mathematician do when they do research?

-What is abstract algebra? What do algebraists study?

-What is number theory? In particular, what are integer partitions?

-How are these areas connected? What does this mean for both disciplines?
