Fundamental Errors in Papers

Authors: Soerivhe Iriene, J. Oquibo Ihwaiuwaue

The paper "Proof of the Polignac Prime Conjecture and other Conjectures", (although listed under the title "Elementary Proof of the Goldbach Conjecture") first published in 2017 claimed to have proven Polignac's conjecture, and in doing so also the twin prime conjecture. The said paper had several problems, not least of which was a catastrophic basic error that completely invalidated the proof. Polignac's conjecture remains unproven, as does the twin primes conjecture.
