Two of Landau's problems seem *surprisingly* doable the first time you see them.

The first is Legendre's conjecture: "Is there always at least one prime between two consecutive squares?", That is, for a given integer [math]n[/math] does there always exist a prime [math]p[/math] such that [math]n^2 < p < (n+1)^2[/math]

This seems all the more doable when you compare to Bertrand's postulate (which is surprisingly ... (more)

We still don't understand fully!

Why do we perceive an identity between all auditory frequencies related by powers of two? How did we arrive at the notion of pitch class,... (more)

Even if Science is objective, scientists are creative people.. ツ

(My statement can be debated upon, but let's do that another time!)
