another view of twin primesAs a new member, I have a favour to ask. Everybody should have at least one prime number theory and I have developed one that I can't find flaws in. After years of writing buggy computer programs, I am enough of a pessimist and realist to recognize that there has to be some error in my logic. Could you show me where I went wrong? The theory is for twin primes. #2 20130816 02:33:18
Re: another view of twin primesHi;
This is not true. My primes could be 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. #4 20130816 03:06:44
Re: another view of twin primesHi;
It is easy to see that the product of P1*P2*P3...Pn + 1 will always be of the form 6n+1 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. #5 20130816 04:54:16
Re: another view of twin primesI see how I am stating Euclid incorrectly now. What has been bothering me is how to state that the prime numbers can be divided into two sequences 6n+1 and 6n1 and more importantly that are both sequences have no limit. #6 20130816 05:57:57

What is that one number? 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. #8 20130816 07:40:49

Re: another view of twin primesThis is going to take a bit longer than I thought. I haven't used the database in a couple of years and there seems to be a problem where I will have to reinstall. I have the code to recreate the numbers but it will be a few days. #10 20130816 09:04:28
Re: another view of twin primesOkay, I am sorry. I know the feeling. Take your time and do it at your own convenience. 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. #11 20130816 20:20:36
Re: another view of twin primesIt came to me in the middle of the night. It would have to be the starting point of minus group 4 which is 6875. #12 20130817 00:53:18
