Hi Everybody
The recent discussions on the above subject reminded me that about a year
ago I posted 2 questions to Primes L which seem related to it. Harvey
Dubner responded and kindly e-mailed me a copy of his paper "Twin Prime
Conjectures". Phil Carmody wrote a script for question 2 and calculated
to 200,000. Seems like the answer to both questions might be yes, but
since theory and sophisticated programming are way beyond me I just gave
up. For anyone that may be interested, here are the 2 questions:
One, is every EVEN integer >= 12 and divisible by 3 always equal to the
SUM or DIFFERENCE of two other EVEN integers divisible by 3, such that
each of those two other even integers plus and minus one is a twin prime
set?
Two, is every EVEN integer >= 12 that is straddled by twin primes always
equal to the sum of two other EVEN integers that are straddled by twin
primes?
Thanks everyone and regards
