Synopsis

In May 2000, the Clay Mathematics Institute (CMI) held its Paris Millennium Event at the College de France. On this occasion, CMI unveiled the "Millennium Prize Problems", seven mathematical quandaries that have long resisted solution. The video by the filmmaker F. Tisseyre provides a portrait of CMI, its culture and the people behind it, as well as of the spirit of the CMI Millennium Event. Excerpts from interviews explain the significance of the prize problems and the challenges they pose. The video of T. Gowers' Keynote Address at the CMI Millennium Meeting is a lucid, dynamic presentation of the deep and important question of the relevance of mathematics to society, delivered by one of the best mathematicians of the modern age. The Problems were set forth by two of the greatest mathematicians of the 20th century, J. Tate and M. Atiyah. The set of two lectures by Tate and Atiyah together comprise a complete description of the Millennium Prize Problems, presented in an entertaining style.
