 mersenneforum.org A proof for the Twin Prime Conjecture
 Register FAQ Search Today's Posts Mark Forums Read 2009-06-13, 02:08 #1 Carl Fischbach   Oct 2007 2·17 Posts A proof for the Twin Prime Conjecture The equations below will generate all twin primes for infinity and will show that the twin prime conjecture is true. 1) 2*odd(C) -Q = prime A 2) (2^n)*odd(D) -Q = prime B Prime A and prime B are twin prime pairs. Q is a sequence of primes 3*5*7*11... which are all potential factors of prime B which are less than int(prime B)^.5 . 2*odd(C) - (2^n)*odd(D) = -2 or +2 For prime A and Prime B to be twin prime pairs odd(C) and Q must have no common factors and odd(D) and Q also must have no common factors. Examples of the twin prime equation. 2*7 -3 =11 16*1 -3 =13 4*5 -3=17 2*11 -3=19 4*11 -3*5 =29 2*23 -3*5 =31 8*7 -3*5 =41 2*29 -3*5 =43 note int(29)^.5 = 5 A simple statistical analysis will show that these equations will produce twin primes for infinity. Since primes occur an infinite number of times equation 1) or 2) will also be prime an infinte number of times. If twin primes were to end, equation 1) and 2) would be prime and not prime an infinite number of times as primes occur. For equations 1) or 2) to be not prime for an infinite number of times, odd(c) and Q or odd(D) and Q would have to have common factors an infinite number of times which would be a statistical impossibility, given the probability that prime A and prime B would both be prime. This statistical impossibility is proof that twin primes occur for infinity.   2009-06-13, 02:47 #2 TimSorbet Account Deleted   "Tim Sorbera" Aug 2006 San Antonio, TX USA 11×389 Posts Doesn't this belong in Misc Math?

This sounds Fischy...

Well, what Mr. Fischbach was saying was of the "crank" nature. Thus, his claims were fishy, and as a pun, I changed it to Fischy.

Florid wouldn't make sense....

Perhaps "Floury" would have been better.   2009-06-24, 05:52   #8

Perhaps. Though I like Fischy better.
