> How did this young 26-year-old mathematician, newly graduated from
> the University of Oxford, get there? Through his thesis work, he
> found a way to improve and simplify Zhang's method, replacing a tool
> that estimates the probability that a number is prime. "Yitang Zhang
> and I started from the same point, but we took completely different
> paths. The method I use is much simpler." So much so that his
> research director, Andrew Granville, says "it could be taught in a
> graduate course."
