A prime number (or a prime) is a natural number greater than 1 that has no positive divisors other than 1 and itself.
The crucial importance of prime numbers to number theory and mathematics in general stems from the fundamental theorem of arithmetic, which states that every integer larger than 1 can be written as a product of one or more primes in a way that is unique except for the order of the prime factors. Primes can thus be considered the “basic building blocks”, the atoms, of the natural numbers.
There are infinitely many primes, as demonstrated by Euclid around 300 BC. There is no known simple formula that separates prime numbers from composite numbers. However, the distribution of primes, that is to say, the statistical behavior of primes in the large, can be modelled. The first result in that direction is the prime number theorem, proven at the end of the 19th century, which says that the probability that a given, randomly chosen number n is prime is inversely proportional to its number of digits, or to the logarithm of n.
The way to build the sequence of prime numbers uses sieves, an algorithm yielding all primes up to a given limit, using only trial division method which consists of dividing n by each integer m that is greater than 1 and less than or equal to the square root of n. If the result of any of these divisions is an integer, then n is not a prime, otherwise it is a prime.
This paper introduces a new way to approach prime numbers, called the DNA-prime structure because of its intertwined nature, and a new process to create the sequence of primes without direct division or multiplication, which will allow us to introduce a new primality test, and a new factorization algorithm.
As a consequence of the DNA-prime structure, we will be able to provide a potential proof of Golbach’s conjecture.

This paper introduces the notion of an S-Structure (short for Squarefree Structure.) After establishing a few simple properties of such S-Structures, we investigate the squarefree natural numbers as a primary example. In this subset of natural numbers we consider "arithmetic" sequences with varying initial elements. It turns out that these sequences are always periodic. We will give an upper bound for the minimal and maximal points of these periods.

**Comments:** 18 Pages. This landmark research paper essentially contains the rigorous proofs for Polignac's and Twin prime conjectures.

Prime numbers and composite numbers are intimately related simply because the complementary set of composite numbers constitutes the set of natural numbers with the exact set of prime numbers excluded in its entirety. In this research paper, we predominantly use our 'Virtual container' method, which incorporates the novel mathematical tool coined Information-Complexity conservation with its core foundation based on this [complete] prime-composite number relationship, to solve the intractable open problem of whether prime gaps are infinite (arbitrarily large) in magnitude with each individual prime gap generating prime numbers which are again infinite in magnitude. This equates to solving Polignac's conjecture which involves analysis of all possible prime gaps = 2, 4, 6,... and [the subset] Twin prime conjecture which involves analysis of prime gap = 2 (for twin primes).

**Comments:** 20 Pages. This research paper essentially contains the rigorous proof for Riemann hypothesis.

The triple countable infinite sets of (i) x-axis intercepts, (ii) y-axis intercepts, and (iii) both x- and y-axes [formally known as the 'Origin'] intercepts in Riemann zeta function are intimately related to each other simply because they all constitute complementary points of intersection arising from the single [exact same] countable infinite set of curves generated by this function. This [complete] relationship amongst all three sets of intercepts will enable us to simultaneously study important intrinsic properties derived from all those intercepts in a mathematically consistent manner which then provides the rigorous proof for Riemann hypothesis as well as fully explain x-axis intercepts (which is the usual traditionally-dubbed 'Gram points') and y-axis intercepts. Riemann hypothesis involves analysis of all nontrivial zeros of Riemann zeta function and refers to the celebrated proposal by famous German mathematician Bernhard Riemann in 1859 whereby all nontrivial zeros are conjectured to be located on the critical line [or equivalently stated as all nontrivial zeros are conjectured to exactly match the Origin intercepts]. Concepts from the Hybrid method of Integer Sequence classification, together with our key formulae coined Sigma-Power Laws, are some of the important mathematical tools employed in this paper to successfully achieve our proof. Not least in [again] using the same 'Virtual container' method in this current research paper, there are other additional deeply inseparable mathematical connections between the content of this paper and our recent publication [Ting, J. Y. C. (March 13, 2017), Unravelling the Dual Source of Prime Number Infiniteness from Prime Gaps using Information-Complexity Conservation, viXra, 1--18] on the dual source of prime number infiniteness.

PrimeNumbers are the atoms of mathematics and mathematics is needed to make sense of the real world. Finding the Prime number structure and eventually being able to crack their code is the ultimate goal in what is called Number Theory. From the evolution of species to cryptography, Nature finds help in Prime numbers.
One of the most important advance in the study of Prime numbers was the paper by Bernhard Riemann in November 1859 called “Ueber die Anzahl der Primzahlen unter einer gegebenen Grösse” (On the number of primes less than a given quantity).
In this paper, Riemann gave a formula for the number of primes less than x in terms the integral of 1/log(x) and the roots (zeros) of the zeta function, defined by:
(1)ζ(z) = ∑1/n^z
The Zeta function, ζ(z), is a function of a complex variable z that analytically continues the Dirichlet series.
Riemann also formulated a conjecture about the location of these zeros, which fall into two classes: the "trivial zeros" -2, -4, -6, etc., and those whose real part lies between 0 and 1. Riemann's conjecture Riemann hypothesis [RH] was formulated as this:
[RH]The real part of every non-trivial zero z* of the Riemann Zeta function is 1/2.
Thus, if the hypothesis is correct, all the non-trivial zeros lie on the critical line consisting of the complex numbers 1/2 + i ß, where ß is a real number and i is the imaginary unit.
In this paper, we will analyze the Riemann Zeta function and provide an analytical/geometrical proof of the Riemann Hypothesis. The proof will be based on the fact that if we decompose the ζ(z) in a difference of two functions, both functions need to be equal when ζ(z)=0, so their distance to the origin or modulus must be equal and we will prove that this can only happen when Re(z)=1/2 for certain values of Im(z).
We will also prove that all non-trivial zeros of ζ(z) in the form z=1/2+iß have all ß related by an algebraic expression. They are all connected and not independent.
Finally, we will show that as a consequence of this connection of all ß, the harmonic function Hn can be expressed as a function of each ß zero of ζ(z) with infinite representations.
We will use mathematical and computational methods available for engineers.

This paper presents a complete and exhaustive proof of Landau's Fourth Problem. The approach to this proof uses same logic that Euclid used to prove there are an infinite number of prime numbers. Then we use a proof found in Reference 1, that if p > 1 and d > 0 are integers, that p and p+ d are both primes if and only if for integer m:
m = (p-1)!( 1/p + ((-1)^d (d!))/(p+d)) + 1/p + 1/(p+d)
We use this proof for d = 2n + 1 to prove the infinitude of Landau’s Fourth Problem prime numbers.

It is proved that the limit of argζ(1/2+i ρ)=-1/2-frac((ϑ(ρ))/π) when ζ(ρ)=0. Therefore, the exact transcendental equation for the Riemann zeros has a solution for each positive integer n which proves that the Riemann hypothesis is true since the counting function for zeros on the critical line is equal to the counting function for zeros on the critical strip if the transcendental equation has a solution for each n, as Leclair has shown.

Using a direct construction approach, the author proves the original Beal conjecture that if
A^x + B^y = C^z , where A, B, C, x, y, z are positive integers and x, y, z > 2, then A, B and C have a common prime factor. Two equations are involved, namely, the equation, A^x + B^y = C^z, and a similar equation, G^m + H^n = I^p which will be called the tester equation. The tester equation has similar properties as A^x + B^y = C^z, and it is used to determine the properties of A^x + B^y = C^z. Each side of the two equations involved is reduced to unity by division. The non-unity sides are justifiably equated to each other to produce a new equation which will be called the master equation. The side of the master equation involving G^m, H^n and I^p will be called the tester side of the master equation. Two versions of the proof are presented. In Version 1 proof, the tester equation is a literal tester equation, but in Version 2 proof, the tester equation is a numerical tester equation. By inspection, using an approach in which the corresponding elements on the right and left sides of the master equation are equated to each other, it is determined that A, B and C have a common prime factor. The proof is very simple, and occupies a single page, and even high school students can learn it.

Let p_n be the nth prime number. We prove that p_(n+1)<〖p_n〗^((n+1)/n ((logp_(n+1))/(logp_n )) ) for every n≥1. This inequality is weaker than the Firoozbakht’s conjecture p_(n+1)<〖p_n〗^((n+1)/n).Afterward we prove that the new inequality is equivalent to Firoozbakht’s conjecture, as n→∞, and hence the Cramér’s conjecture p_(n+1)-p_n=O(log^2 p_n ) to be hold, because the Firoozbakht’s conjecture is stronger than the Cramér’s conjecture, see [5].

The present paper shows that a principle known as emergence lies beneath the strong Goldbach conjecture. Whereas the traditional approaches focus on the control over the distribution of the primes by means of circle method and sieve theory, we give a proof of the conjecture that is based on the constructive properties of the prime numbers, reflecting their multiplicative character within the natural numbers. With an equivalent but more convenient form of the conjecture in mind, we create a structure on the natural numbers. That structure leads to arithmetic identities which immediately imply the conjecture, more precisely, an even strengthened form of it. Moreover, we can achieve further results by generalizing the structuring. Thus, it turns out that the statement of the strong Goldbach conjecture is the special case of a general principle.

In mathematics, and in particular number theory, Grimm's Conjecture (named after Karl Albert Grimm) states that to each element of a set of consecutive composite numbers one can assign a distinct prime that divides it. It was first published in American Mathematical Monthly, 76(1969) 1126-1128.
The Formal statement defining Grimm’s Conjecture, still unproved, is as follows:
Suppose n + 1, n + 2, …, n + k are all composite numbers, then there are k distinct primes pi such that pi divides n + i for 1 ≤ i ≤ k.

In mathematics, Hall's conjecture is an open question, as of 2015, on the differences cube x3 that are not equal must lie a substantial distance apart. This question arose from consideration of the Mordell equation in the theory of integer points on elliptic curves. The original version of Hall's conjecture, formulated by Marshall Hall, Jr. in 1970, says that there is a positive constant C such that for any integers x and y for which y2 ≠ x3,

This paper presents a complete proof of the Cullen Primes are infinite, even though only 16 of them have been found as of 21 Feb 2017. We use a proof found in Reference 1, that if p > 1 and d > 0 are integers, that p and p+ d are both primes if and only if for integer m:
See paper for this equation, as the text in this abstract does not support the mathematical format for this equation.
We use this proof for d = P2 + 1 to prove the infinitude of Cullen prime numbers.
The author would like to give many thanks to the authors of 1001 Problems in Classical Number Theory, Jean-Marie De Koninck and Armel Mercier, 2004, Exercise Number 161 (see Reference 1). The proof provided in Exercise 6 is the key to making this paper on the Cullen Prime Conjecture possible.

In our previous work (The distribution of prime numbers: overview of n.ln(n), (1) and (2)) we defined a new method derived from Rosser's theorem (2) and we used it in order to approximate the nth prime number. In this paper we improve our method to try to determine the next prime number if the previous is known. We use our method with five intervals and two values for n (see Methods and results). Our preliminary results show a reduced difference between the real next prime number and the number given by our algorithm. However long-term studies are required to better estimate the next prime number and to reduce the difference when n tends to infinity. Indeed an efficient algorithm is an algorithm that could be used in practical research to find new prime numbers for instance.

The Poulet numbers (or the Fermat pseudoprimes to base 2) are defined by the fact that are the only composites n for which 2^(n – 1) – 1 is divisible by n (so, of course, all Mersenne numbers 2^(n - 1) – 1 are divisible by Poulet numbers if n is a Poulet number; but these are not the numbers I consider in this paper). In a previous paper I conjectured that any composite Mersenne number of the form 2^m – 1 with odd exponent m is divisible by a 2-Poulet number but seems that the conjecture was infirmed for m = 49. In this paper I conjecture that any Mersenne number (with even exponent) 2^(p – 1) – 1 is divisible by at least a Poulet number for any p prime, p ≥ 11, p ≠ 13.

The empirical formula giving the nth prime number p(n) is p(n) = n.ln(n) (from ROSSER (2)). Other studies have been performed (from DUSART for example (1)) in order to better estimate the nth prime number. Unfortunately these formulas don't work since there is a significant difference between the real nth prime number and the number given by the formulas. Here we propose a new model in which the difference is effectively reduced compared to the empirical formula. We discuss about the results and hypothesize that p(n) can be approximated with a constant defined in this work. As prime numbers are important to cryptography and other fields, a better knowledge of the distribution of prime numbers would be very useful. Further investigations are needed to understand the behavior of this constant and therefore to determine the nth prime number with a basic formula that could be used in both theoretical and practical research.

In this paper I make the following conjecture: If F(2*p) is a Fibonacci number with an index equal to 2*p, where p is prime, p ≥ 5, then there exist a prime or a product of primes q1 and a prime or a product of primes q2 such that F(2*p) = q1*q2 having the property that q2 – 2*q1 is also a Fibonacci number with an index equal to 2^n*r, where r is prime or the unit and n natural. Also I observe that the ratio q2/q1 seems to be a constant k with values between 2.2 and 2.237; in fact, for p ≥ 17, the value of k seems to be 2.236067(...).

There are many conjectures concerning primes are challenging mathematicians for hundreds of years and many “advanced mathematics tools” are used to solve them, but they are still unsolved.

Christian Goldbach (March 18, 1690 – November 20, 1764) was a German mathematician. He is remembered today for Goldbach's conjecture.
Goldbach's conjecture is one of the oldest and best-known unsolved problems in number theory and all of mathematics. It states: Every even integer greater than 2 can be expressed as the sum of two primes.
On 7 June 1742, the German mathematician Christian Goldbach wrote a letter to Leonhard Euler (letter XLIII) in which he proposed the following conjecture:
Every even integer which can be written as the sum of two primes (the strong conjecture)
He then proposed a second conjecture in the margin of his letter:
Every odd integer greater than 7 can be written as the sum of three primes (the weak conjecture).
A Goldbach number is a positive even integer that can be expressed as the sum of two odd primes. Since four is the only even number greater than two that requires the even prime 2 in order to be written as the sum of two primes, another form of the statement of Goldbach's conjecture is that all even integers greater than 4 are Goldbach numbers.
The “strong” conjecture has been shown to hold up through 4 × 1018, but remains unproven for almost 300 years despite considerable effort by many mathematicians throughout history.
In number theory, Goldbach's weak conjecture, also known as the odd Goldbach conjecture, the ternary Goldbach problem, or the 3-primes problem, states that
Every odd number greater than 5 can be expressed as the sum of three primes. (A prime may be used more than once in the same sum). In 2013, Harald Helfgott proved Goldbach's weak conjecture.
The author would like to give many thanks to Helfgott’s proof of the weak conjecture, because this proof of the strong conjecture is completely dependent on Helfgott’s proof. Without Helfgott’s proof, this elementary proof would not be possible.

This paper presents a complete and exhaustive proof of the Polignac Prime Conjecture. The approach to this proof uses same logic that Euclid used to prove there are an infinite number of prime numbers. Then we use a proof found in Reference 1, that if p > 1 and d > 0 are integers, that p and p+ d are both primes if and only if for integer n:
n = (p-10!(1/p + ((-1)^d(d!))/(p+d)) + 1/p + 1/(p+d)
We use this proof for d = 2k to prove the infinitude of Polignac prime numbers.
The author would like to give many thanks to the authors of 1001 Problems in Classical Number Theory, Jean-Marie De Koninck and Armel Mercier, 2004, Exercise Number 161 (see Reference 1). The proof provided in Exercise 6 is the key to making this paper on the Polignac Prime Conjecture possible.
Additionally, our proof of the Polignac Prime Conjecture leads to proofs of several other significant number theory conjectures such as the Goldbach Conjecture, Twin Prime Conjecture, Cousin Prime Conjecture, and Sexy Prime Conjecture. Our proof of Polignac’s Prime Conjecture provides significant accomplishments to Number Theory, yielding proofs to several conjectures in number theory that has gone unproven for hundreds of years.

This article proposes the generalization of the both binary (strong) and ternary (weak) Goldbach’s Conjectures (BGC and TGC), briefly called “the Vertical Goldbach’s Conjectures” (VBGC and VTGC), discovered in 2007[1] and perfected until 2016[2] by using the arrays (S_p and S_o,p) of Matrix of Goldbach index-partitions (GIPs) (simple M_p,n and recursive M_o,p,n, with order o ≥ 0), which are a useful tool in studying BGC by focusing on prime indexes (as the function P_n that numbers the primes is a bijection). Simple M (M_p,n) and recursive M (M_o,p,n) are related to the concept of generalized “primeths” (a term first used by Fernandez N. in his “The Exploring Primeness Project”), which is the generalization with order o≥0 of the known “higher-order prime numbers” (alias “superprime numbers”, “super-prime numbers”, ”super-primes”, ” super-primes” or “prime-indexed primes[PIPs]”) as a subset of (simple or recursive) primes with (also) prime indexes (oPx is the x-th o-primeth, with order o ≥ 0 as explained later on).

This paper provides a potential pathway to a formal simple proof of Fermat's Last Theorem. The geometrical formulations of n-dimensional hypergeometrical models in relation to Fermat's Last Theorem are presented. By imposing geometrical constraints pertaining to the spatial allowance of these hypersphere configurations, it can be shown that a violation of the constraints confirms the theorem for n equal to infinity to be true.

Abstract. This paper introduces proofs to several open problems in number theory, particularly the Goldbach Conjecture and the Twin Prime Conjecture. These two conjectures are proven by using a greedy elimination algorithm, and incorporating Mertens' third theorem and the twin prime constant. The argument is extended to Germain primes, Cousin Primes, and other prime related conjectures. A generalization is provided for all algorithms that result in a Euler product\prod{1-\frac{a}{p}}.

In this paper I make the following conjecture: For any pair of consecutive primes [p1, p2], p2 > p1 > 43, p1 and p2 having the same number of digits, there exist a prime q, 5 < q < p1, such that the number n obtained concatenating (from the left to the right) q with p2, then with p1, then again with q is prime. Example: for [p1, p2] = [961748941, 961748947] there exist q = 19 such that n = 1996174894796174894119 is prime. Note that the least values of q that satisfy this conjecture for twenty consecutive pairs of consecutive primes with 9 digits are 19, 17, 107, 23, 131, 47, 83, 79, 61, 277, 163, 7, 41, 13, 181, 19, 7, 37, 29 and 23 (all twenty primes lower than 300!), the corresponding primes n obtained having 20 to 24 digits! This method appears to be a good way to obtain big primes with a high degree of ease and certainty.

In this paper I conjecture that there exist an infinity of primes p = 30*h + j, where j can be 1, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23 or 29, such that, concatenating to the left p with a number m, m < p, is obtained a number n having the property that the number of primes of the form 30*k + j up to n is equal to p. Example: such a number p is 67 = 30*2 + 7, because there are 67 primes of the form 30*k + 7 up to 3767 and 37 < 67. I also conjecture that there exist an infinity of primes q that don’t belong to the set above, i.e. doesn’t exist m, m < q, such that, concatenating to the left q with m, is obtained a number n having the property shown. Primes can be classified based on this criteria in two sets: primes p that have the shown property like 13, 17, 23, 31, 37, 41, 47, 59, 61, 67, 71, 73, 89, 103 (...) and primes q that don’t have it like 7, 11, 19, 29, 43, 53, 79, 83, 101 (...).

In this paper I conjecture that for any prime p, p > 5, there exist q prime, q > p, where p = 30*k + m1 and q = 30*h + m2, m1 and m2 distinct, having one from the values 1, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29, such that the number of primes congruent to m1 (mod 30) up to n, where n is the number obtained concatenating p with q, is equal to the number of primes congruent to m2 (mod 30) up to n. Example: for p = 17 there exist q = 23 such that there are 34 primes of the form 30*k + 17 up to 1723 and 34 primes of the form 30*k + 23 up to 1723.

In this paper I conjecture that there exist an infinity of numbers n obtained concatenating two primes p and q, where p = 30*k + m1 and q = 30*h + m2, p < q, m1 and m2 distinct, having one from the values 1, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29, such that the number of primes congruent to m1 (mod 30) up to n is equal to the number of primes congruent to m2 (mod 30) up to n. Example: for n = 1723 obtained concatenating the primes p = 17 and q = 23, there exist 34 primes of the form 30*k + 17 up to 1723 and 34 primes of the form 30*k + 23 up to 1723.

In this paper we prove a simple theorem that is distantly related to the Even Goldbach conjecture and is weaker than Chen’s theorem regarding the expression of any even integer as the sum of a prime number and a semiprime number. We show that any even integer greater than six can be written as the sum of two odd integers coprime to one another and atleast one of them is a prime.

In this paper I conjecture that there exist an infinity of palindromes n for which the number of primes up to n of the form 30k + 7 is equal to the number of primes up to n of the form 30k + 11 and I found the first 40 terms of the sequence of n (I also found few larger terms, as 99599, 816618 or 1001001 up to which the number of primes from the two sets, equally for each, is 1154, 8159, respectively 9817).

The ABC conjecture is both likely of the wrong and likely of the right in the face of satisfactory many primes and satisfactory many odd numbers of 6K±1 from operational results of computer programs. So we find directly a specific equality 1+2N (2N-2)=(2N-1)2 with N≥2, then set about analyzing limits of values of ε to discuss the right and the wrong of the ABC conjecture in which case satisfying 2N-1>(Rad(1, 2N(2N-2), 2N-1))1+ε . Thereby supply readers to make with a judgment concerning a truth or a falsehood which the ABC conjecture is.

En 1997, Andrew Beal \cite{B1} avait annonc\'e la conjecture suivante : \textit{Soient $A, B,C, m,n$, et $l$ des entiers positifs avec $m,n,l > 2$. Si $A^m + B^n = C^l$ alors $A, B,$ et $C$ ont un facteur en commun}. Nous consid\'erons le polyn\^ome $P(x)=(x-A^m)(x-B^n)(x+C^l)=x^3-px+q$ avec $p,q$ des entiers qui d\'ependent de $A^m,B^n$ et $C^l$. La r\'esolution de $x^3-px+q=0$ nous donne les trois racines $x_1,x_2,x_3$ comme fonctions de $p,q$ et d'un param\`etre $\theta$. Comme $A^m,B^n,-C^l$ sont les seules racines de $x^3-px+q=0$, nous discutons les conditions pour que $x_1,x_2,x_3$ soient des entiers. Quatre exemples num\'eriques sont pr\'esent\'es.

In my previous paper “Conjecture involving repunits, repdigits, repnumbers and also the primes of the form 30k + 11 and 30k + 13” I conjectured that there exist an infinity of repnumbers n (repunits, repdigits and numbers obtained concatenating not the unit or a digit but a number) for which the number of primes up to n of the form 30k + 11 is equal to the number of primes up to n of the form 30k + 13 and I found the first 18 terms of the sequence of n (I also found few larger terms, as 11111, 888888 and 11111111 up to which the number of primes from the two sets, equally for each, is 167, 8816, respectively 91687). In this paper I extend the search to first 40 terms of the sequence.

In my previous paper “Conjecture on semiprimes n = p*q related to the number of primes up to n” I was wondering if there exist a class of numbers n for which the number of primes up to n of the form 30k + 1, 30k + 7, 30k + 11, 30k + 13, 30k + 17, 30k + 19, 30k + 23 and 30k + 29 is equal in each of these eight sets. I didn’t yet find such a class, but I observed that around the repdigits, repunits and repnumbers (numbers obtained concatenating not the unit or a digit but a number) the distribution of primes in these eight sets tends to draw closer and I made a conjecture about it.

In this paper I conjecture that there exist an infinity of semiprimes n = p*q, where p = 30*k + m1 and q = 30*h + m2, m1 and m2 distinct, having one from the values 1, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29, such that the number of primes congruent to m1 (mod 30) up to n is equal to the number of primes congruent to m2 (mod 30) up to n. Example: for n = 91 = 7*13, there exist 3 primes of the form 30*k + 7 up to 91 (7, 37 and 67) and 3 primes of the form 30*k + 13 up to 91 (13, 43 and 73).

The even Goldbach conjecture suggests that every even integer greater than four may be written as the sum of two odd primes. This conjecture remains unproven. We explore whether two probable primes satisfying the Fermat’s little theorem can potentially exist for every even integer greater than four. Our results suggest that there are no obvious constraints on this possibility.

This paper proves an identity for generating a special kind of Pythagorean quadruples by conjecturing that the shortest is defined by a=1,2,3,4...... and b=a+1, c=ab and d=c+1. It also shows that a+d=b+c and that the surface area to volume ratio of these Pythagorean boxes is given by 4/a where a is the length of the shortest edge(side).

In a previous paper I conjectured that for any largest prime factor of a Poulet number p1 with two prime factors exists a series with infinite many Poulet numbers p2 formed this way: p2 mod (p1 - d) = d, where d is the largest prime factor of p1 (see the sequence A214305 in OEIS). In this paper I conjecture that for any least prime factor of an odd Harshad number h1 with two prime factors, not divisible by 3, exists a series with infinite many Harshad numbers h2 formed this way: h2 mod (h1 - d) = d, where d is the least prime factor of p1.

The ABC conjecture seemingly is difficult to carry conviction in the face of satisfactory many primes and satisfactory many odd numbers of 6K±1 from operational results of computer programs. So we select and adopt a specific equality 1+2N(2N-2)=(2N-1)2 with N≥2 satisfying 2N-1>(Rad(2N-2))1+ ε. Then, proceed from the analysis of the limits of values of ε to find its certain particular values, thereby finally negate the ABC conjecture once and for all.

Bunyakovsky's conjecture states that under special conditions, polynomial integer functions of degree greater than one generate infinitely many primes.
The main contribution of this paper is to introduce a new approach that enables to prove Bunyakovsky's conjecture. The key idea of this new
approach is that there exists a general method to solve this problem by using only arithmetic progressions and congruences.
As consequences of Bunyakovsky's proven conjecture, three Landau's problems are resolved: the n^2+1 problem, the twin primes conjecture and
the binary Goldbach conjecture.
The method is also used to prove that there are infinitely many primorial and factorial primes.

The Collatz conjecture is an open conjecture in mathematics named so after Lothar Collatz who proposed it in 1937. It is also known as 3n + 1 conjecture, the Ulam conjecture (after Stanislaw Ulam), Kakutanis problem (after Shizuo
Kakutani) and so on. Several various generalization of the Collatz conjecture
has been carried. In this paper a new generalization of the Collatz conjecture
called as the 3n ± p conjecture; where p is a prime is proposed. It functions on
3n + p and 3n - p, and for any starting number n, its sequence eventually enters
a finite cycle and there are finitely many such cycles. The 3n ± 1 conjecture, is
a special case of the 3n ± p conjecture when p is 1.

Prime numbers and composite numbers are intimately related simply because the complementary set of composite numbers constitutes the set of natural numbers with the exact set of prime numbers excluded in its entirety. In this research paper, we use our 'Virtual container' method, which predominantly incorporates the novel mathematical tool coined Information-Complexity conservation with its core foundation based on this [complete] prime-composite number relationship, to solve the intractable open problem of whether prime gaps are infinite (arbitrarily large) in magnitude with each individual prime gap generating prime numbers which are again infinite in magnitude. This equates to solving Polignac's conjecture which involves analysis of all possible prime gaps = 2, 4, 6,... and [the subset] Twin prime conjecture which involves analysis of prime gap = 2 (for twin primes). In conjunction with our cross-referenced 2017-dated research paper entitled "Rigorous proof for Riemann hypothesis using Sigma-Power Laws" http://viXra.org/abs/1703.0114, we advocate for our ambition that the Virtual container method be considered as a new method of mathematical proof especially for ’Special-Class-of-Mathematical-Problems with Solitary-Proof-Solution’.

The triple countable infinite sets of (i) x-axis intercepts, (ii) y-axis intercepts, and (iii) both x- and y-axes [formally known as the 'Origin'] intercepts in Riemann zeta function are intimately related to each other simply because they all constitute complementary points of intersection arising from the single [exact same] countable infinite set of curves generated by this function. This [complete] relationship amongst all three sets of intercepts will enable us to simultaneously study important intrinsic properties derived from all those intercepts in a mathematically consistent manner which then provides the rigorous proof for Riemann hypothesis as well as fully explain x-axis intercepts (which is the usual traditionally-dubbed 'Gram points') and y-axis intercepts. Riemann hypothesis involves analysis of all nontrivial zeros of Riemann zeta function and refers to the celebrated proposal by famous German mathematician Bernhard Riemann in 1859 whereby all nontrivial zeros are conjectured to be located on the critical line [or equivalently stated as all nontrivial zeros are conjectured to exactly match the Origin intercepts]. Concepts from the Hybrid method of Integer Sequence classification, together with our key formulae coined Sigma-Power Laws, are some of the important mathematical tools employed in this paper to successfully achieve our proof. Not least in [again] using the same 'Virtual container' method in this current research paper, there are other additional deeply inseparable mathematical connections between the content of this paper and our 2017-dated publication on the dual source of prime number infiniteness entitled "Rigorous proofs for Polignac's and Twin prime conjectures using Information-Complexity conservation" http://viXra.org/abs/1703.0115.

Abstract. It is conjectured that when t=t_n is the imaginary part of the n-th zero of ζ on the critical line, the normalised argument S(t_)_=π^(-1)argζ(1/2+i t__) is equal to S(t)=S_n(t_n)=_n-3/2-(ϑ(t_n_))/π where ϑ(t) is the Riemann-Siegel ϑ function. If S(t_n)=S_n(t_n)∀n∈ℤ^+ then the exact transcendental equation for the Riemann zeros has a solution for each positive integer n which proves that Riemann's hypothesis is true since the counting function for zeros on the critical line is equal to the counting function for zeros on the critical strip in that case.

It is conjectured that argζ(1/2+i t_n)=S_n(t_n) where S_n(t_n)=π(3/2-frac((ϑ(t_n))/π)-⌊g~^(-1)(n)⌋-n) and g~^(-1)(t)=(t ln(t/(2 π e)))/(2 π)+7/8 is the inverse of g~(n)=((8n-7)π)/(4 W((8n-7)/(8 e))) which accurately approximates the Gram points g(n) and that all of the non-trivial zeros of ζ, enumerated by n, are on the critical line. Therefore, if argζ(1/2+i t_n)=S_n(t_n) then the exact transcendental equation for the Riemann zeros has a solution for each positive integer n which proves that Riemann's hypothesis is true since the counting function for zeros on the critical line is equal to the counting function for zeros on the critical strip if the transcendental equation has a solution for each n.

Using a direct construction approach, the author proved the original Beal conjecture that if A^x + B^y = C^z , where A, B, C, x, y, z are positive integers and x, y, z > 2, then A, B and C have a common prime factor. Two main types of equations were involved, namely, the equation A^x + B^y = C^z and an equation which was called a tester equation. A tester equation has similar properties as A^x + B^y = C^z and was used to determine the properties of A^x + B^y = C^z . Also, two types of tester equations, namely, a literal tester equation and a numerical tester equation were applied. Each side of A^x + B^y = C^z and a tester equation was reduced to unity by division. The non-unity sides were justifiably equated to each other to produce a new equation which was called the master equation. The side of the master equation involving the terms of the tester equation was called the tester side of the master equation. Three versions of the proof were presented. In Version 1 proof, the tester equation was the literal equation G^m + H^n = I^p, but in Versions 2 and 3 proofs, the tester equations were the numerical tester equations, 2^9 + 8^3 = 4^5 and 3^3 + 6^3 = 3^5, respectively. By a comparative analysis, in which the corresponding "terms" on the right and left sides of the master equation were equated to each other, it was determined that if A^x + B^y = C^z , then A, B and C have a common prime factor. The proof is very simple, and occupies a single page, and even, high school students can learn it.

It is proved that the non-trivial roots of the Hardy Z function are simple having multiplicity 1 by showing that the fixed-points N_Z(α)=α of the Newton map N_Z(t)=t-(Z(t))/(Z˙(t)) must have a multiplier λ_(N_Z)(α)=|(N_Z)˙(α)|=|(Z(α)Z¨(α))/(Z˙(α))|=0 and therefore a multiplicity m_Z(α)=1/(1-λ_(N_Z)(α))=1/(1-0)=1.

The present paper shows that a principle known as emergence lies beneath the strong Goldbach conjecture. Whereas the traditional approaches focus on the control over the distribution of the primes by means of circle method and sieve theory, we give a proof of the conjecture that involves the constructive properties of the prime numbers, reflecting their multiplicative character within the natural numbers. With an equivalent but more convenient form of the conjecture in mind, we create a structure on the natural numbers which is based on the prime factorization. Then, we realize that the characteristics of this structure immediately imply the conjecture and, in addition, an even strengthened form of it. Moreover, we can achieve further results by generalizing the structuring. Thus, it turns out that the statement of the strong Goldbach conjecture is the special case of a general principle.

An iteration function which has fixed-points at the zeros of the Hardy Z function is constructed and it is shown that it is impossible for this function converge to a non-real number when started with a real number. If there were any zeros of ζ(t) with Re(t)≠1/2 they would correspond to zeros of Z(t) with Im(t)≠0 and thus the constructed interation function must be able to converge for at least one real-valued starting point to a number with non-zero imaginary part, but this is impossible because the iteration function is real-valued when its argument is real. Thus, the Riemann hypothesis is shown to be true.

A kaleidoscope can produce an endless variety of colorful patterns and it looks like a magic, but when you open it, it contains only very simple, loose, colored objects such as beads or pebbles and bits of glass. Goldbach’s conjecture is about all numbers, the pattern of prime numbers likes a “kaleidoscope” of numbers, we divided any even numbers into 10 groups and primes into 4 groups, Goldbach’s conjecture becomes much simpler.

The even Goldbach conjecture suggests that every even integer greater than four may be written as the sum of two odd primes. This conjecture remains unproven. We explore whether two probable primes satisfying the Fermat’s little theorem can potentially exist for every even integer greater than four. Our results suggest that there are no obvious constraints on this possibility.

It is conjectured that argζ(1/2+i t_n)=S_n(t_n)=π(3/2-frac((ϑ(t_n))/π)-⌊g~^(-1)(n)⌋-n) where g~^(-1)(t)=(t ln(t/(2 π e)))/(2 π)+7/8 is the inverse of g~(n)=((8n-7)π)/(4 W((8n-7)/(8 e))) which accurately approximates the Gram points g(n) and that all of the non-trivial zeros of ζ, enumerated by n, are on the critical line. Therefore, if S(t)=S_n(t_n) then the exact transcendental equation for the Riemann zeros has a solution for each positive integer n which proves that Riemann's hypothesis is true since the counting function for zeros on the critical line is equal to the counting function for zeros on the critical strip if the transcendental equation has a solution for each n.

Bunyakovsky's conjecture states that under special conditions, polynomial integer functions of degree greater than one generate innitely
many primes.
The main contribution of this paper is to introduce a new approach that enables to prove Bunyakovsky's conjecture. The key idea of this new
approach is that there exists a general method to solve this problem by using only arithmetic progressions and congruences.
As consequences of Bunyakovsky's proven conjecture, three Landau's problems are resolved: the n^2+1 problem, the twin primes conjecture and
the binary Goldbach conjecture.
The method is also used to prove that there are infinitely many primorial and factorial primes.
