The Riemann Hypothesis Video (Clay Institute)

The Riemann Hypothesis says that all of the non-trivial zeros of the analytic continuation of the Riemann zeta function lie on the critical line z=1/2+iy.

This (only slightly technical) video gives a nice description of the conjecture as well as some of the important consequences with regards especially to the distribution of the prime numbers.

Video (here).
