The Riemann zeta function, in its simplicity, is the key to a bunch of well-known theorems in algebra and number theory. We will introduce the zeta function in its various shapes and forms, and discover these connections. Finally, we will have a glance at the Riemann hypothesis, find evidence for its correctness and shed light on some of its consequences.
