What is the connection between the asymptotic enumeration of the representations of SU(3), the Bernoulli numbers, modular forms, and a mysterious analytic function called the Witten zeta function? A very interesting one, it turns out. In this talk I will explain how my recent proof of a result about the former led to some unexpected discoveries about the latter. No background on the topics of the talk will be assumed.
