**Introduction to Zhang’s Bounded Prime Gaps Proof**

*Jack Dalton*

In this first talk, I’ll give some initial comments on bounded prime gaps, define some fun functions, and (time permitted) give an overview of the proof’s technique.

**Elliptic Curves**

*Garvin Gaston*

An introduction to the arithmetic and geometry of elliptic curves, elliptic curves over C, and some discussion of how elliptic curves are being used in cryptography.
