This video provides a basic introduction to the Riemann Hypothesis based on the the superb book 'Prime Obsession' by John Derbyshire. Along the way I look at convergent and divergent series, Euler's famous solution to the Basel problem, and the Riemann-Zeta function. Analytic continuation of the Zeta function is discussed as well as the sum of the positive integers. Finally, the Riemann Hypothesis is stated and briefly discussed.
