Open Number Theory Problem

Authors: Ricardo.gil
Comments: 1 Page. Email solutions or suggestions to Ricardo.gil@sbcglobal.net

In math the the 7 Clay Math unsolved problems? Another problem is the question if there is a God(s)? In my paper the purpose is to explain that in the end we all meet our maker and that man does not have the power to cheat death. Like the Riemann Zeta function that remains unsolved and when solved will give insight to distribution of the Primes, giving or solving this open-end problem will help me solve a problem. This is the only problem I have not been able to solve and I am open sourcing it.

Analytic Demonstrations on the Fourfold Root Topics of Primes

Authors: Shaban A. Omondi Aura
Comments: 30 Pages. Preferably for journals, academies and conferences

This paper is concerned with formulation and demonstration of new versions of equations that can help us resolve problems concerning maximal gaps between consecutive prime numbers, the number of prime numbers at a given magnitude and the location of nth prime number. There is also a mathematical argument on why prime numbers as elementary identities on their own respect behave the way they do. Given that the equations have already been formulated, there are worked out examples on numbers that represent different cohorts. This paper has therefore attempted to formulate an equation that approximates the number of prime numbers at a given magnitude, from N=3 to N=〖10〗^25. Concerning the location of an nth prime number, the paper has devised a method that can help us locate a given prime number within specified bounds. Nonetheless, the paper has formulated an equation that can help us determine extremely bounded gaps. Lastly, using trans-algebraic number theory method, the paper has shown that unpredictable behaviors of prime numbers are due to their identity nature.

Conjecture on the Pairs of Primes Obtained Inserting N with Digit Sum 12 After the First Digit of Twin Primes

Authors: Marius Coman
Comments: 2 Pages.

In this paper I conjecture that for any pair of twin primes [p, q], p ≥ 11, there exist a number n having the sum of its digits equal to 12 such that inserting n after the first digit of p respectively q are obtained two primes (almost always twins, as in the case [1481, 1483] where n = 48 is inserted in [11, 13], beside the case that the first digit of twins is different, as in the case [5669, 6661] where n = 66 is inserted in [59, 61]).

On the Riemann Hypothesis, Complex Scalings and Logarithmic Time Reversal

Authors: Carlos Castro
Comments: 11 Pages. Submitted to Mod. Phys. Letts A.

An approach to solving the Riemann Hypothesis is revisited within the framework of the special properties of $\Theta$ (theta) functions, and the notion of $ {\cal C } { \cal T} $ invariance. The conjugation operation $ {\cal C }$ amounts to complex scaling transformations, and the $ {\cal T } $ operation $ t \rightarrow ( 1/ t ) $ amounts to the reversal $ log (t) \rightarrow - log ( t ) $. A judicious scaling-like operator is constructed whose spectrum $E_s = s ( 1 - s ) $ is real-valued, leading to $ s = {1\over 2} + i \rho$, and/or $ s $ = real. These values are the location of the non-trivial and trivial zeta zeros, respectively. A thorough analysis of the one-to-one correspondence among the zeta zeros, and the orthogonality conditions among pairs of eigenfunctions, reveals that $no$ zeros exist off the critical line. The role of the $ {\cal C }, {\cal T } $ transformations, and the properties of the Mellin transform of $ \Theta$ functions were essential in our construction.

Primes Obtained Concatenating a Poulet Number P with (s-1)÷n Where S Digits Sum of P and N is 2, 3 or 6

Authors: Marius Coman
Comments: 2 Pages.

In this paper I conjecture that there exist an infinity of Poulet numbers P such that concatenating P to the left with the number (s(P) – 1)/2, where s is the sum of digits of P, is obtained a prime; also I make the same conjecture for (s(P) – 1)/3 respectively for (s(P) – 1)/6.

Primes Obtained Concatenating to the Left a Prime Having an Odd Prime Digit Sum S with a Divisor of S-1

Authors: Marius Coman
Comments: 2 Pages.

In a previous paper, “Primes obtained concatenating a Poulet number P with (s - 1)/n where s digits sum of P and n is 2, 3 or 6”, I noticed that in almost all the cases that I considered if a prime was obtained through this concatenation than the digits sum of P was a prime. That gave me the idea for this paper where I observe that for many primes p having an odd prime digit sum s there exist a prime obtained concatenating p to the left with a divisor of s – 1 (including 1 and s – 1).

Primes Obtained Concatenating to the Left a Prime Having an Odd Prime Digit Sum S with a Multiple of S-1

Authors: Marius Coman
Comments: 2 Pages.

In a previous paper, “Primes obtained concatenating to the left a prime having an odd prime digit sum s with a divisor of s - 1”, I observed that for many primes p having an odd prime digit sum s there exist a prime obtained concatenating p to the left with a divisor of s – 1. In this paper I conjecture that for any prime p, p ≠ 5, having an odd prime digit sum s there exist an infinity of primes obtained concatenating to the left p with multiples of s – 1. Yet I conjecture that there exist at least a prime obtained concatenating n*(s – 1) with p such that n < sqr s.

The Wave Function ψ of the Riemann Zeta Function ζ(0.5+it):

Authors: Jason Cole
Comments: 4 Pages.

There is exciting research trying to connect the nontrivial zeros of the Riemann Zeta function to Quantum mechanics as a breakthrough towards proving the 160-year-old Riemann Hypothesis. This research offers a radically new approach. Most research up to this point have focused only on mapping the nontrivial zeros directly to eigenvalues. Those attempts have failed or didn’t yield any new breakthrough. This research takes a radically different approach by focusing on the quantum mechanical properties of the wave graph of Zeta as ζ(0.5+it) and not the nontrivial zeros directly. The conjecture is that the wave forms in the graph of the Riemann Zeta function ζ(0.5+it) is a wave function ψ. It is made of a Complex version of the Parity Operator wave function. The Riemann Zeta function consists of linked Even and Odd Parity Operator wave functions on the critical line. From this new approach, it shows the Complex version of the Parity Operator wave function is Hermitian and it eigenvalues matches the zeros of the Zeta function.

A Criterion Arising from Explorations Pertaining to the Oesterle-Masser Conjecture

Authors: Christopher Goddard
Comments: 23 Pages.

Using an extension of the idea of the radical of a number, as well as a few other ideas, it is indicated as to why one might expect the Oesterle-Masser conjecture to be true. Based on structural elements arising from this proof, a criterion is then developed and shown to be potentially sufficient to resolve two relatively deep conjectures about the structure of the prime numbers. A sketch is consequently provided as to how it might be possible to demonstrate this criterion, borrowing ideas from information theory and cybernetics.

AAFrempong Conjecture

Authors: A. A. Frempong
Comments: 2 Pages. Copyright © by A. A. Frempong

The above conjecture evolved when after proving the Beal conjecture algebraically (viXra:1702.0331), the author attempted to prove the same conjecture geometrically. The new conjecture states that if A^x + B^y = C^z, where A, B, C, x, y, z are positive integers, x, y, z > 2, and A ≠ B ≠ C ≠ 2, then A, B and C cannot be the lengths of the sides of a triangle. A proof of the above conjecture may shed some light on the relationships between similar equations and the lengths of the sides of polygons. Counterexamples could be added to the exceptions.

A Sieve for the Twin Primes

Authors: H. L. Mitchell
Comments: 14 Pages.

This paper presents a sieve for the twin primes using a double application of the Sieve of Eratosthenes to the k index for multiples of 6 centered around the primes ranging from 5 to sqrt N. Considering the set {(6k-1, 6k+1)}, we look at the exact pattern in which multiples of primes p occur in the set with respect to the values of k. By deleting the values of k such that 6k-1 is composite, we get the set of all pairs such that 6k-1 is prime, then from these we delete those in which 6k+1 is composite. That leaves us with the set of all twin primes less than N. We derive a mathematical formula accordingly using the Euler product formula, the Prime Number Theorem, Mertens’ Theorem and the Hardy-Littlewood Conjecture. The main results are: 1) A sieve for the twin primes similar to the sieve of Eratosthenes for primes 2) A formula for the approximate number of twin primes less than N in terms of the number of primes 3) The asymptotic formula for the number of twin primes less than N

Formula to Generate a Set of Poulet Numbers from a Poulet Number P and Its Factor D Lesser Than Sqr P

Authors: Marius Coman
Comments: 2 Pages.

In this paper I make the following observation: Let d be a factor (not necessarily prime) of the Poulet number P such that d < sqr P and m the least number such that m*d*(d – 1) > (P – 1)/2. Let n be equal to P – m*d*(d – 1). Then often exist a set of Poulet numbers Q such that Q mod(m*d*(d – 1)) = n. For example, for P = 2047 = 23*89 and d = 23, where d < sqr 2047, the least m such that m*23*22 > (P – 1)/2 is equal to 3 (1518 > 1023, while, for 2, 1012 < 1023); so, n = 2047 – 3*23*22 = 2047 – 1518 = 529 and indeed there exist a set of Poulet numbers Q such that Q mod 1518 = 529; the formula 1518*x + 529 gives the Poulet numbers 2047, 6601, 15709, 30889 (...) for x = 1, 4, 10, 20 (...).

Poulet Numbers Which Can be Written as X^3±y^3

It is well known the story of the Hardy-Ramanujan number, 1729 (also a Poulet number), which is the smallest number expressible as the sum of two cubes in two different ways, but I have not met yet, not even in OEIS, the sequence of the Poulet numbers which can be written as x^3±y^3, sequence that I conjecture in this paper that is infinite. I also conjecture that there are infinite Poulet numbers which are centered cube numbers (equal to 2*n^3 + 3*n^2 + 3*n + 1), also which are centered hexagonal numbers (equal to 3*n^2 + 3*n + 1).

New Approximation Algorithms of Pi, Accelerated Convergence Formulas from N = 100 to N = 2m

Authors: François Mendzina Essomba, Gael Dieudonné Essomba Essomba
Comments: 7 Pages. algorithm, convergence and approximation

We give algorithms for the calculation of pi. These algorithms can be easily developed in a linear manner and allows the calculation of pi with an infinite degree of convergence. Of course, the calculation of the second term passes through the first one, and it is necessary, as this type of algorithms, for a larger memory for calculations contrary to the formula BBP [1] whose execution corresponds to the order of the desired number. The advantage of our formulas in spite of the dificulty associated with extracting sin(x) lies in their degree of convergence, which is infinite, they prove the Borweins brothers hypothesis on the construction of algorithms At any speed as symbolized in our generic formula (8) of this paper. These formulas for the most part are totally new : We had found several other formulas of pi l

An Elementary Proof of Goldbach's Conjecture

Authors: Chongxi Yu
Comments: 18 Pages.

Prime numbers are the basic numbers and are crucial important. There are many conjectures concerning primes are challenging mathematicians for hundreds of years. Goldbach's conjecture is one of the oldest and best-known unsolved problems in number theory and in all of mathematics. 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. Human is very easily cheated by 2 words, infinite and anything, because we never see infinite and anything, so we always make simple thing complex. Goldbach’s conjecture is about all very simple numbers, the pattern of prime numbers likes a “kaleidoscope” of numbers, we divided any even numbers into 5 groups and primes into 4 groups, Goldbach’s conjecture becomes much simpler. Here we give a clear proof for Goldbach's conjecture based on the fundamental theorem of arithmetic, the prime number theorem, and Euclid's proof that the set of prime numbers is endless. Key words: Goldbach's conjecture, fundamental theorem of arithmetic, Euclid's proof of infinite primes, the prime number theorem

On Fermat's Equation and the General Case

Authors: C Sloane
Comments: 29 Pages. This paper is with several institutions and this submission is a time-stamp of authorship.

We discovered a beautiful symmetry to the equation x^n+y^n± z^n , first studied by Fermat, in a dependent variable t = x+y-z and the product (xyz) if we introduce a term we call the symmetric r = x^2+yz-xt-t^2. Once x^n+y^n± z^n is written in terms of powers of t, r and (xyz) we looked at the coefficient vs. exponent abstract space and found Lucas, Fibonacci and Convoluted Fibonacci sequences among other corollaries. We also found that 3 cases of a prime decomposition factor q of x^2+yz gave certain results for Fermat’s Last Theorem which could be eliminated if a forth case could also be solved. Intrigued by this, we then introduce partial congruence representations modulo a prime for this much harder forth case to find the ‘form’ of the solutions modulo q. The form of the solutions leads us to a cubic congruence method that solves the special and general cases. There are several pages and stages of the proofs where computer verification of the results is possible.

An Introduction to the $n$-Formal Sequents and the Formal Numbers

Authors: A. Zaganidis
Comments: 17 Pages. I have chosen the category Mathematics-Number Theory since most of the consequences of the present article are inside the number theory

In this work, we introduce the $n$-formal sequents and the formal numbers defined with the help of the second order logic. We give many concrete examples of formal numbers and $n$-formal sequents with the Peano's axioms and the axioms of the real numbers. Shortly, a sequent is $n$-formal iff the sequent is composed by some closed hypotheses and a $n$-formal formula (an explicit sub-formula with one free variable which is only true with the unique natural number $n$), and no sub-sequent are composed by some closed sub-hypotheses and a $m$-formal explicit sub-formula with $m>1$. The definition is motivated by the intuition that the ``nature's hypotheses'' do not carry natural numbers or "hidden natural numbers" except for the numbers $0$ and $1$, i.e., they can be used in a $n$-formal sequent. Moreover, we postulate at second order of logic that the ``nature's hypotheses'' are not chosen randomly: the ``nature's hypotheses'' are the only hypotheses which give the largest formal number $N_Z=1497$. The Goldbach's conjecture, the Dubner's conjecture, the Polignac's conjecture, the Firoozbakht's conjecture, the Oppermann's conjecture, the Agoh-Giuga conjecture, the generalized Fermat's conjecture and the Schinzel's hypothesis H are reviewed with this new (second order logic) formal axiom. Finally, three open questions remain: Can we prove that a natural number is not formal? If a formal number $n$ is found with a function symbol $f$ where its outputs values are only $0$ and $1$, can we always replace the function symbol $f$ by a another function symbol $\tilde{f}$ such that $\tilde{f}=1-f$ and the new sequent is still $n$-formal? Does a sequent exist to make a difference between the definition of the $n$-formal sequents and the following variant of that definition: we look at the explicit sub-formulas of $\phi$ which induce the $m$-formal formulas instead of looking at the explicit sub-formulas of $\phi_{n-formal}$ which are $m$-formal formulas?

On the Recurrence ((((P∙2-D)∙2-D)∙2-D)...) on Poulet Numbers P Having a Prime Factor D

Authors: Marius Coman
Comments: 2 Pages.

In this paper I note two sequences of Poulet numbers: the terms of the first sequence are the Poulet numbers which can be written as P*2 – d; the terms of the second sequence are the Poulet numbers which can be written as (P*2 – d)*2 - d, where P is another Poulet number and d one of the prime factors of P. I also conjecture that the both sequences are infinite and I observe that the recurrent relation ((((P*2 – d)*2 – d)*2 – d)...) conducts sometimes to more than one Poulet number (for instance, starting with P = 4369 and d = 257, the first, the second and the third numbers obtained are 8481, 16705 and 33153, all three Poulet numbers).

A New Approach to Prime Numbers

Authors: Pedro Caceres
Comments: 23 Pages.

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.

Unravelling the Dual Source of Prime Number Infiniteness from Prime Gaps using Information-Complexity Conservation

Authors: John Yuk Ching Ting
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).

Unravelling the True Location of Nontrivial Zeros in Riemann Zeta Function using Sigma-Power Laws

Authors: John Yuk Ching Ting
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.

An Engineer’s Approach to the Riemann Hypothesis and Why it is True

Authors: Pedro Caceres
Comments: 25 Pages.

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.

Elementary Proof That There are Infinitely Many Primes p such that p − 1 is a Perfect Square (Landau's Fourth Problem)

Authors: Stephen Marshall
Comments: 8 Pages.

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. 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 Landau’s Fourth Problem possible.

This paper presents the way to make expansion for the next form function: y = x n , ∀(x,n) ∈ N to the numerical series. The most widely used methods to solve this problem are Newton’s Binomial Theorem and Fundamental Theorem of Calculus (that is, derivative and integral are inverse operators). The paper provides the other kind of solution, based on induction from particular to general case, except above described theorems.

The Argument of ζ is Well-Defined at Zeros on the Critical Line

Authors: Stephen Crowley
Comments: 5 Pages.

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.

The Asymptotic Riemann Hypothesis (ARH)

Authors: Antoine Balan
Comments: 3 pages, written in French

We propose in the present paper to consider the Riemann Hypothesis asympotically (ARH) ; it means when the imaginary part of the zero in the critical band is great. We show that the problem, expressed in these terms, is equivalent to the fact that an equation called the * equation has only a finite number of solutions, but we have not proved it.

This paper elucidates the major points of the above referenced paper. 1. Emphasizes the derivation of the double helices and that they are not arbitrarily chosen. 2. Explains why multiples of 42 appear in prime number theory. 3. Why s in 6s-1 and 6s+1 is really a composite number. 4. Why 2 and 3 are not true prime numbers based upon characteristics. 5. Philosophical reason as to the double helices falling more into a discoverable category (as in experimental physics), as opposed to being postulate driven.

Beal Conjecture Original Directly Proved

Authors: A. A. Frempong
Comments: 4 Pages. Copyright © by A. A. Frempong

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.

On the Firoozbakht’s and Cramér‎’s Conjectures as N→∞

Comments: 5 Pages.

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 Goldbach Conjecture - An Emergence Effect of the Primes

Authors: Ralf Wüsthofen
Comments: 11 Pages. Older versions on http://vixra.org/abs/1403.0083

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.

Elementary Proof Grimm's Conjecture

Authors: Stephen Marshall
Comments: 3 Pages.

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.

A New Simple Recursive Algorithm for Finding Prime Numbers Using Rosser's Theorem

Authors: Rédoane Daoudi
Comments: 7 Pages.

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.

Conjecture on a Subset of Mersenne Numbers Divisible by Poulet Numbers

Authors: Marius Coman
Comments: 3 Pages.

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 Distribution of Prime Numbers: Overview of N.ln(n)

Authors: Rédoane Daoudi
Comments: 12 Pages.

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.

Elementary Proof of the Goldbach Conjecture

Authors: Stephen Marshall
Comments: 4 Pages.

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.

Comments: 8 Pages. This is an update to my proff subitted in 2014, I have simpified the submission by removing uneccessary material from the proof.

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.

Authors: Andrei Lucian Dragoi
Comments: 7 Pages.

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). The author of this article also brings in a S-M-synthesis of some Goldbach-like conjectures (GLC) (including those which are “stronger” than BGC) and a new class of GLCs “stronger” than BGC, from which VBGC (which is essentially a variant of BGC applied on a serial array of subsets of primeths with a general order o ≥ 0) distinguishes as a very important conjecture of primes (with great importance in the optimization of the BGC experimental verification and other potential useful theoretical and practical applications in mathematics [including cryptography and fractals] and physics [including crystallography and M-Theory]), and a very special self-similar propriety of the primes subset of (noted/abbreviated as or as explained later on in this article).

La recherche de cette dépendance, c'est-à-dire la manière dont une α donnée est exprimée au moyen des nombres premiers sera l'objet d'études ultérieures.' Also the proof of the Riemann hypothesis is based on the definition of an application between the set P of the prime numbers and the set S of the zeros of ζ.

Hyperspheres in Fermat's Last Theorem

Authors: Kelvin Kian Loong Wong
Comments: 17 Pages. French translation for abstract and keywords

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.

An Algorithmic Proof of the Twin Primes Conjecture and the Goldbach Conjecture

Authors: Juan G. Orozco
Comments: 8 Pages.

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}}.

Conjecture on 3-Carmichael Numbers of the Form (4h+1)(4j+1)(4k+1)

Authors: Marius Coman
Comments: 2 Pages.

In this paper I conjecture that for any 3-Carmichael number (absolute Fermat pseudoprime with three prime factors, see the sequence A087788 in OEIS) of the form (4*h + 1)*(4*j + 1)*(4*k + 1) is true that h, j and k must share a common factor (in fact, for seven from a randomly chosen set of ten consecutive, reasonably large, such numbers it is true that both j and k are multiples of h). The conjecture is probably true even for the larger set of 3-Poulet numbers (Fermat pseudoprimes to base 2 with three prime factors, see the sequence 215672 in OEIS).

(VBGC 1.0 25.01.2017 15 Pages) the " Vertical " (Generalization Of) the Binary Goldbach's Conjecture (VBGC 1.0) as Applied on Primes with (Recursive) Prime Indexes (o-Primeths)

Authors: Andrei Lucian Dragoi
Comments: 15 Pages.

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). The author of this article also brings in a S-M-synthesis of some Goldbach-like conjectures (GLC) (including those which are “stronger” than BGC) and a new class of GLCs “stronger” than BGC, from which VBGC (which is essentially a variant of BGC applied on a serial array of subsets of primeths with a general order o ≥ 0) distinguishes as a very important conjecture of primes (with great importance in the optimization of the BGC experimental verification and other potential useful theoretical and practical applications in mathematics [including cryptography and fractals] and physics [including crystallography and M-Theory]), and a very special self-similar propriety of the primes subset of (noted/abbreviated as or as explained later on in this article). Keywords: Prime (number), primes with prime indexes, the o-primeths (with order o≥0), the Binary Goldbach Conjecture (BGC), the Ternary Goldbach Conjecture (TGC), Goldbach index-partition (GIP), fractal patterns of the number and distribution of Goldbach index-partitions, Goldbach-like conjectures (GLC), the Vertical Binary Goldbach Conjecture (VBGC) and Vertical Ternary Goldbach Conjecture (VTGC) the as applied on o-primeths

Conjecture on the Pairs of Consecutive Primes Having the Same Number of Digits Involving Concatenation

Authors: Marius Coman
Comments: 4 Pages.

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.

On the Riemann Hypothesis, Complex Scalings and Logarithmic Time Reversal

Authors: Carlos Castro
Comments: 13 Pages. Submitted to Mod. Phys. Letts A

An approach to solving the Riemann Hypothesis is revisited within the framework of the special properties of $\Theta$ (theta) functions, and the notion of $ {\cal C } { \cal T} $ invariance. The conjugation operation $ {\cal C }$ amounts to complex scaling transformations, and the $ {\cal T } $ operation $ t \rightarrow ( 1/ t ) $ amounts to the reversal $ log (t) \rightarrow - log ( t ) $. A judicious scaling-like operator is constructed whose spectrum $E_s = s ( 1 - s ) $ is real-valued, leading to $ s = {1\over 2} + i \rho$, and/or $ s $ = real. These values are the location of the non-trivial and trivial zeta zeros, respectively. A thorough analysis of the one-to-one correspondence among the zeta zeros, and the orthogonality conditions among pairs of eigenfunctions, reveals that $no$ zeros exist off the critical line. The role of the $ {\cal C }, {\cal T } $ transformations, and the properties of the Mellin transform of $ \Theta$ functions were essential in our construction.

The Wave Function ψ of the Riemann Zeta Function ζ(0.5+it):

Authors: Jason Cole
Comments: 4 Pages.

There is exciting research trying to connect the nontrivial zeros of the Riemann Zeta function to Quantum mechanics as a breakthrough towards proving the 160-year-old Riemann Hypothesis. This research offers a radically new approach. Most research up to this point have focused only on mapping the nontrivial zeros directly to eigenvalues. Those attempts have failed or didn’t yield any new breakthrough. This research takes a radically different approach by focusing on the quantum mechanical properties of the wave graph of Zeta as ζ(0.5+it) and not the nontrivial zeros directly. The conjecture is that the wave forms in the graph of the Riemann Zeta function ζ(0.5+it) is a wave function ψ. It is made of a Complex version of the Parity Operator wave function. The Riemann Zeta function consists of linked Even and Odd Parity Operator wave functions on the critical line. From this new approach, it shows the Complex version of the Parity Operator wave function is Hermitian and it eigenvalues matches the zeros of the Zeta function.

An Elementary Proof of Goldbach's Conjecture

Authors: Chongxi Yu
Comments: 22 Pages.

Prime numbers are the basic numbers and are crucially important. There are many conjectures concerning primes that have been challenging mathematicians for hundreds of years. Goldbach's conjecture is one of the oldest and most well-known unsolved problems in number theory and in all of mathematics. A kaleidoscope can produce an endless variety of colorful patterns and it looks like magic, but when you open one and examine it, it contains only very simple, loose, colored objects such as beads or pebbles and bits of glass. Humans are very easily cheated by 2 words, infinite and anything, because we never see infinite and anything, and so we always make a simple thing complex. Goldbach’s conjecture is about all very simple numbers, with the pattern of prime numbers similar to a “kaleidoscope” of numbers. If we divided all even numbers into 5 groups and primes into 4 groups, Goldbach’s conjecture becomes much simpler. Here we give a clear proof for Goldbach's conjecture based on the fundamental theorem of arithmetic, the prime number theorem, and Euclid's proof that the set of prime numbers is endless.

From the practical perspective, these q-naturals correspond to ordered pairs of natural numbers with the lexicographic ordering, hence, they are isomorphic to ω^2. In addition, we demonstrate a novel definition of the arithmetical operation, multiplication, which turns out to be recursive. This, in turn, enables our demonstration of a counter-example to Tennenbaum’s Theorem.

A New Approach to Prime Numbers and Why Golbach’s Conjecture is True

Authors: Pedro Caceres
Comments: 23 Pages.

Abstract: 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 two-page proof, by contraposition, of Fermat's last theorem, uses two analogous forms of a previously overlooked equation, each of which is equivalent to rational z^n-y^n = x^n. A relationship held in common by these two equations reveals the crucial n = 1, 2 limitation.

Solving Polignac's and Twin Prime Conjectures Using Information-Complexity Conservation

Authors: John Yuk Ching Ting
Comments: 21 Pages. This research paper outline the rigorous proofs for Polignac's and Twin prime conjectures. It is cross-related to Solving Riemann Hypothesis Using Sigma-Power Laws (http://viXra.org/abs/1703.0114).

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' (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 "Solving Riemann Hypothesis Using Sigma-Power Laws" (http://viXra.org/abs/1703.0114), we advocate for our ambition that the Virtual container research method be considered a new method of mathematical proof especially for solving the 'Special-Class-of-Mathematical-Problems with Solitary-Proof-Solution'.

An Expression For The Argument of ζ at Zeros on the Critical Line

Authors: Stephen Crowley
Comments: 6 Pages.

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.

Beal Conjecture Original Directly Proved

Authors: A. A. Frempong
Comments: 5 Pages. Copyright © by A. A. Frempong

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.

A Sequence of Cauchy Sequences Which Converge to the Imaginary Parts of the Zeros of the Riemann Zeta Function

Authors: Stephen Crowley
Comments: 9 Pages. no b.s. this time, it should be impossible to argue with this one ;)

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.

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. A kaleidoscope can produce an endless variety of colorful patterns and it looks like magic, but when you open one and examine it, it contains only very simple, loose, colored objects such as beads or pebbles and bits of glass. Humans are very easily cheated by 2 words, infinite and anything, because we never see infinite and anything, and so we always make a simple thing complex. The pattern of prime numbers similar to a “kaleidoscope” of numbers, if we divide primes into 4 groups, twin primes conjecture becomes much simpler. Based on the fundamental theorem of arithmetic and Euclid’s proof of endless prime numbers, we have proved there are infinitely many twin primes.

We give a clear proof for Goldbach's conjecture based on the fundamental theorem of arithmetic and Euclid's proof that the set of prime numbers is endless. Key words: Goldbach's conjecture , fundamental theorem of arithmetic, Euclid's proof of infinite primes

(VBGC 1.5e 23.02.2017 Full Version 32 Pages) the "Vertical" (Generalization Of) the Binary Goldbach's Conjecture (VBGC) as Applied on “iterative” Primes with (Recursive) Prime Indexes (i-Primeths)

Authors: Andrei Lucian Dragoi
Comments: 32 Pages.

(BGC and TGC) [1,2,3,4] [5,6,7], briefly called “the Vertical Goldbach’s Conjectures” (VBGC and VTGC), which are essentially meta-conjectures (as VBGC states an infinite number of conjectures stronger than BGC). VBGC was discovered in 2007[1] and perfected until 2016[2] by using the arrays (S_p and S_i,p) of Matrix of Goldbach index-partitions (GIPs) (simple M_p,n and recursive M_i,p,n, with iteration order i ≥ 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_i,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 iteration order i≥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 (iPx is the x-th o-primeth, with iteration order i ≥ 0 as explained later on). The author of this article also brings in a S-M-synthesis of some Goldbach-like conjectures (GLC) (including those which are “stronger” than BGC) and a new class of GLCs “stronger” than BGC, from which VBGC (which is essentially a variant of BGC applied on a serial array of subsets of primeths with a general iteration order i ≥ 0) distinguishes as a very important conjecture of primes (with great importance in the optimization of the BGC experimental verification and other potential useful theoretical and practical applications in mathematics [including cryptography and fractals] and physics [including crystallography and M-Theory]), and a very special self-similar propriety of the primes subset of (noted/abbreviated as or as explained later on in this article). Keywords: Prime (number), primes with prime indexes, the i-primeths (with iteration order i≥0), the Binary Goldbach Conjecture (BGC), the Ternary Goldbach Conjecture (TGC), Goldbach index-partition (GIP), fractal patterns of the number and distribution of Goldbach index-partitions, Goldbach-like conjectures (GLC), the Vertical Binary Goldbach Conjecture (VBGC) and Vertical Ternary Goldbach Conjecture (VTGC) the as applied on i-primeths

An Algorithmic Proof of the Twin Primes Conjecture and the Goldbach Conjecture

Authors: Juan G. Orozco
Comments: 9 Pages.

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 an Euler product like\prod{\left(1-\frac{a}{p}\right)}.
