Re: Prime sum of three term arithmetic progression?It is lucky that you have not. It is a dilly. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #52 20130509 07:46:33
Re: Prime sum of three term arithmetic progression?Sure looks like it. The limit operator is just an excuse for doing something you know you can't. “It's the subject that nobody knows anything about that we can all talk about!” ― Richard Feynman “Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear most.” ― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Crime and Punishment #53 20130509 07:48:28
Re: Prime sum of three term arithmetic progression?It is a type of problem that occurs frequently and I have never really solved one, a simultaneous gf!!!!! In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.

Re: Prime sum of three term arithmetic progression?Yep, 20 of them for that problem! In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Prime sum of three term arithmetic progression?What are simultaneous gfs?

Re: Prime sum of three term arithmetic progression?That is a good question. The problem leads to 20 diophantine equations. Every diophantine equation of the linear type can be represented by a gf. Now they have to be solved in relation to each other to get the number of solutions for the entire system. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Prime sum of three term arithmetic progression?I am looking for a way to represent the whole thing with one multivariate gf.

Re: Prime sum of three term arithmetic progression?I have not been having much luck with any approach at the moment. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #60 20130521 03:32:17
Re: Prime sum of three term arithmetic progression?Hi stefy,
Apparently posts containing only uppercase words are changed to lower case (other than each word's first letter), but uppercase words in mixedcase posts keep their case.
