Number Theory


Solution to One of Landau's Problems

Authors: Germán Paz

In this paper it is proved that for every positive integer 'k' there are infinitely many prime numbers of the form n^2+k. As a result, it is proved that there are infinitely many prime numbers of the form n^2+1. This document also proposes a new and important conjecture about prime numbers called 'Conjecture C'. If this conjecture is true, then Legendre’s Conjecture, Brocard’s Conjecture and Andrica’s Conjecture are all true, and also some other important results will be true. Previous papers (written in Spanish language) were reviewed and approved by Carlos Giraldo Ospina (Lic. Matemáticas, USC, Cali, Colombia).
