‘Travelling Salesman’ is an intellectual thriller set in a fictional reality where four brilliant mathematicians solve the P vs NP problem, a major unsolved mathematical problem with profound implications for computer science and cryptography. Offered $10 million dollars by the US government for exclusive access to the solution, they must grapple with the practical and moral repercussions of discovering a proof that P = NP.

This is the first time that ‘Travelling Salesman’ has been shown in the UK. The screening will be prefaced by a short mathematical talk. (Subject to confirmation, the evening may also include a Q and A session with the writer/director, Timothy Lanzone.)
