In week 5 we are joined via video link from Australia by Stephanie Hanson, a York Alumn, who will be talking on the patterns in the prime numbers.

Abstract:
"Humans have studied prime numbers for thousands of years but some of the biggest mysteries in mathematics revolve around these simple objects. What can we write as the sum of two primes? How many prime numbers differ by 6? Why are there more prime numbers on the sequence 3, 7, 10, ... than on the sequence 1, 5, 9, ...? These are all unanswered yet deeply understandable problems and this talk aims to give some idea of the current state of play of these problems and more."
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Thomas Wright. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

Now this, this is my kind of CAPTCHA! Amusingly, it's actually dead simple... if you recall a little basic math and geometry.

20/20; quite a good selection of languages in this quiz, but with a rather modern bias (Lisp style languages strangely omitted).

Well, that's one reason to tweak the nose of contemporary Luddites.
