Newsflash - Goldbach's Conjecture


* * * NEWSFLASH * * *

Following Newsletter No. 9


In his book 'Goldbach Theorem' Dr S. K. Kapoor arrives at the result regarding Goldbach's conjecture that for the even number E>64, there are at least (E squared)/4 ways that it can be expressed as a sum of two primes. In addition to his proof he has verified this result for various E, the largest being 2^30.

Dr Kapoor wants to verify the above for Uncle Petros' number i.e. 2^100 which will have at least 2^48 partitions into prime pairs that add up to 2^100. If you can advise on availability of software that can handle numbers of this size or if you can do the calculations or advise on where they could be done please contact Dr Kapoor at:
