Goldbach’s Conjecture remains unsolved for the past 350 years!!

Hey guys,

Goldbach, a mathematician Proposed a theorem 350 years back. Its a simple theorem which is not yet proved.

It states  “all positive even integers >=4 can be expressed as the sum of two primes“.  According to Hardy “It is comparatively easy to make clever guesses; indeed there are theorems, like ‘Goldbach’s Theorem,’ which have never been proved and which any fool could have guessed”. It seems Faber and Faber was ready to offer $1000000 who can prove this conjecture between 2000 to 2002. But prize went unclaimed. Years are passing but the conjecture remains open 🙂 .

  1. The Goldbach’s conjecture, besides the other three Landau’s problems, are completely solved in the following papers:
    A. Prástaro, The Landau’s problems.I: The Goldbach’s conjecture proved. arXiv: 1208.2473.
    A. Prástaro, The Landau’s problems. II: Landau’s problems solved. arXiv: 1208.2473.
    For details see also author’s web-site.

    • Hello Prof.Dr. Agostino Prástaro,

      I feel happy to see the person who solved a math mystery, commenting in my blog.
      Congrats and all the best for your current and future works!

      Cheers,
      Murali
