Abstract

We all know that movies have great moments and sports have great moments, but arguably mathematics has the greatest moments of all. For those who need to be convinced of this claim, we detail below an important number-theoretic example: that of the Riemann zeta function $s)$. Here you can learn about its memorable moments, in both a mathematical and a historical sense. Not only will you read about some current open problems involving $s)$, but you can enjoy some stories that have arisen over the years about the mathematicians working in the area.
