Uncle Petros and Goldbach's Conjecture
- A Novel of Mathematical Obsession
- By: Apostolos Doxiadis
- Narrated by: Keith Szarabajka
- Length: 4 hrs and 41 mins
Petros Papachristos devotes the early part of his life to trying to prove one of the greatest mathematical challenges of all time: Goldbach's Conjecture, the deceptively simple claim that every even number greater than two is the sum of two primes. Against a tableau of famous historical figures-among them G. H. Hardy, the self-taught Indian genius Srinivasa Ramanujan, and a young Kurt Godel-Petros works furiously to prove the notoriously difficult conjecture.
