Title: The Riemann zeta-function

Abstract: The Riemann zeta-function is the subject of the most famous open conjecture in mathematics, the Riemann hypothesis. In this talk I will give an introduction to the Riemann zeta-function: what it is, what it measures, what its basic properties are, and its relationships to problems in number theory, including two famous open problems: the Riemann hypothesis, and the question of the existence of infinitely many regular primes.
