Hi All;
The following attachment shows a diagram of the ratio R[2m] = g^2[2m]/g[2m2]*g[2m+2] where g[2m] is the number of goldbach partitions for the even number 2m. What is the reason for the "forbidden zones". I understand this is somehow to do with the factors of the even number, but why the empty zones. Regards

If you assume (out of my left sleeve) that g[2m2],g[2m],g[2m+2] are numbers more or less close to N, whenever the corresponding 2m2, 2m, 2m+2 are not divisible by 3 (that is, on the lower region of the 'comet'), and close to 2N otherwise (the upper region of the comet), then, as one of 2m2, 2m, 2m+2 will be divisible by 3 and the others won't, your ratio  assuming that you mean g^2[2m]/(g[2m2]*g[2m+2])  would end up close to either (4N^2)/(N^2) = 4 or to (N^2)/(2N^2) = 0.5, which is more or less what you see.
But of course, this is just a pile of speculation and loosely founded assumptions on my part.
