Counting from Infinity: Yitang Zhang and the Twin Prime Conjecture   In April, 2013 Yitang "Tom" Zhang, a virtually unknown mathematician working as an adjunct professor at the University of New Hampshire, submitted a paper to the Annals of Mathematics. Zhang had made an important breakthrough in Number Theory by solving the Twin Prime Conjecture (pairs of prime numbers that differ by two). His work, Small Gaps Between Primes, was immediately recognized as an important mathematical break- through, and Zhang became an instant celebrity - a role for which he was unprepared. The film documents Zhang's quiet perseverance amidst adversity, and his preference for thinking and working in solitude. Zhang's story is interwoven with a history of the Twin Prime Conjecture as told by several mathematicians.G
