As this is my first email to you I will start off with some
compliments. First, if I could speak your language as well as you
speak English then I would probably be a better person for it. So
ability is not the point here. Also, as I have remarked in an
earlier post. Anyone who has the self esteem to post on primepages
is at least A. a `cheeky chappy' maths student or B. someone who has
something to say about prime numbers. I notice that you are a 4th
chemistry student so you fall into category B.
Now to the prime numbers. The way to get people's attention on the
list is to put forward a mathematical proposition that we can than
prove right or wrong, or expand upon using standard mathematical
In your email you write,
6 = 2^f *S. plus some other identities. This is obviously not
What is your conclusion?
In my last theme of 2^n +1 = pn , the combined egroups list has
admirably proved that
this equation is in fact
2^3^a + 1 = p3^a. Which apart from a=1 has no solutions for a<=11 as
you can check using Primeform. As 2^3^12 + 1 beats the Proth record
by some amount it is highly unlikely that we can find a new solution
within a few weeks.
So you see, your conclusion must also hint at or lead us to a real
numerical test, and then we can all go and have a cup of tea.
Your conclusion has to stand by itself free of all support,
admirable though your web site may be. So the first thing we want to
see is a statement of your conclusion. Then we will tell you whether
you are right or wrong or whether it is interesting.
I look forward to your futher postings.
