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 🙂 .
