4214Fw: [PrimeNumbers] A goldbach conjecture for twin primes
- Nov 30, 2001Michael is correct saying that this conjecture implies both the Goldbach
conjecture and the twin prime conjecture. That is why I have no intention
of trying to prove it. I have verified it up to 2*10^10. A paper , "Twin
Prime Conjectures" is going to be published in
the Journal of Recreational Mathematics which might be of interest. I will
be happy to send a preprint to anyone who asks.
Please specify if you want dvi or pdf file.
