But, the Goldbach conjecture amounts to the claim that there is a non-zero lower bound.

The Goldbach conjecture (see Abstract and Definitions) states that every even integer e [greater than or equal to] 4 is goldbach.
Last week we were winding up our solutions to both the Delian Problem and the Goldbach Conjecture.
Fermat's Last Theorem presents findings in connection with FLT and also discusses the Goldbach Conjecture.
As you see, the number 2 does not fit the Goldbach conjecture because it is not the sum of two prime numbers.
a number not even and not a sum of two primes) thus confirms the Goldbach conjecture, an so also confirms its consequence, the 'little' Goldbach conjecture.
The Goldbach conjecture [1742] is that every even number larger than 2 can be expressed as a sum of two primes.

The Goldbach conjecture, devised by historian and mathematician Christian Goldbach in 1742, proposes that every even number is the sum of two primes; for example, 8 = 3 + 5.
