The Goldbach conjecture [1742] is that every even number larger than 2 can be expressed as a sum of two primes.
Recently, in 2000, some new direction of proof of Goldbach conjecture has been forwarded by Kalita [2].
Fermat's Last Theorem presents findings in connection with FLT and also discusses the Goldbach Conjecture.
Last week we were winding up our solutions to both the Delian Problem and the Goldbach Conjecture.
Note that to prove Theorem 2 which immediately implies the Mersenne primes conjecture and the fact that this conjecture (that we solved) was only an obvious special case of the Goldbach conjecture, we consider a couple (n, f(n)) such that (n, f (n)) is a counter-example with n minimum and f(n, 2) minimum.
4) of Remark 2, it becomes trivial to deduce that the Mersenne primes conjecture is an obvious special case of the Goldbach conjecture.
