The hardest "What comes next?" (Euler's pentagonal formula)
This video is about one or my all-time favourite theorems in math(s): Euler's amazing pentagonal number theorem, it's unexpected connection to a prime number detector, the crazy infinite refinement of the Fibonacci growth rule into a growth rule for the partition numbers, etc. All math(s) mega star material, featuring guest appearances by Ramanujan, Hardy and Rademacher, and the "first substantial" American theorem by Fabian Franklin.
