Travelling salesman - first UK screening

Tue 20 November 2012

Millennium Maths Project (MMP)

'Travelling Salesman' is an intellectual thriller with a mathematical background.

Four brilliant mathematicians solve the P vs NP problem, a major unsolved mathematical 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 Q & A session with the writer/director, Timothy Lanzone.

'Travelling Salesman' has won a number of awards, including Best Feature Film at the 2012 Silicon Valley Film Festival.

Cost: £7.50
