ABSTRACT:  Number Theory, which is typically referred to as “The Queen of Mathematics” is branch of pure mathematics that investigates the properties of the integers. In this talk we provide a historical overview of classical number theory and examine various real world applications of number theory. Lastly, if time permits, we will discuss how technology has contributed to the development and advancement of number theory.
