The Millennium Mathematics Project is delighted to be hosting the UK premiere of acclaimed indie film Travelling Salesman, an intellectual thriller imagining the consequences of solving the P vs NP problem.
Travelling Salesman is an intellectual thriller with a mathematical background. Four brilliant mathematicians solve the P vs NP problem, with profound implications for computer science and cryptography. Offered $10 million dollars by the US government for exclusive access to the solution, they must grapple with the practical and moral repercussions of discovering a proof that P = NP.
This is the first time that Travelling Salesman has been shown in the UK. The screening will be prefaced by a short introductory talk, and will be followed by a live Q&A session with the writer/director, Timothy Lanzone.
The screening will take place at 6.30 pm on Tuesday 20 November at the Centre for Mathematical Sciences in Cambridge. Entry is by ticket only (£7.50 each).
