Riemann prime distribution for dummies?

  • #1
I saw a documentary recently that talked about the distribution of prime numbers and their similarity to vibrations in a sphere of quartz when struck by metal ball bearings. I tried to look up Riemann online and was overloaded with advanced math. Is there a resource where I can find out more about this correlation between primes and the physical world, without being blown away by the math?

Are you talking about the one with Alan Davies and Macus du Sautoy?
And no there isn't

btw that's the surprising(?) connection between discrete quantities (primes) & continuously variable ones.
