I am looking for an accessible explanation of the link between the distribution of the primes and the Riemann zeta function.
I have read the related questions and answers here (eg this), and also via internet search, and also key recommended books (popular maths, like Prime Obsession, texts like Apostol, etc) - and they either gloss over the key points, or are aimed at readers with university level maths.
I would appreciate answers here, or pointers to explanations elsewhere.
My students understand the Euler product formula, complex functions, calculus.
Note - this is a repeat of a previous question (now deleted) as it was marked negative without explanation.
