Today's conjecture: Golbach's conjecture
Monday, July 07, 2008

Every even integer greater than 2 can be written as the sum of two primes.

I say, why not. Let's try it: 4 = 2 + 2 holds; 12 = 7 + 5 holds. Therefore, true.

Well, it's not proven yet, but why doubt your intuition, right?

Now, a more interesting question: are there any even primes? I think mathematicians are still looking for them. You see, they decided to check for odd primes first, and haven't gotten around checking for even primes. You know, with that whole deal of numbers being infinite and all. I'm hoping they finish with the odds sometime soon and just settle the question of those even primes > 2.
