RE: [PrimeNumbers] Proof of infinite Germainn primes

• Phil, Jon, No need to look that far into the proof - it has all gone wrong before we even get into the mathematics, at the definition stage: Germain primes

Phil, Jon,

No need to look that far into the proof - it has all gone wrong before we even
get into the mathematics, at the definition stage: "Germain primes are primes
'p' such that 2p-1 is prime". (They are primes p such that 2p+1 is prime)

Regards,

Paul.

• Alright, I meant the Woodall primes. Anyway the proof covers both 2p-1 and 2p+1. Jon Perry perry@globalnet.co.uk http://www.users.globalnet.co.uk/~perry/maths
