## Solutions to Polignac's and Twin Prime's Conjecture

 Quote by JCVD This is not the matrix I described above, but it should be obvious that continuing the construction below for an infinite matrix will make each row sum -1 and each column sum 1. \begin{array}{cccccccccc} 1 & -2 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 \\ 0 & 1 & -2 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 \\ 0 & 1 & -2 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 \\ 0 & 1 & -2 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 \\ 0 & 0 & 1 & -2 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 \\ 0 & 0 & 1 & -2 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 \\ 0 & 0 & 1 & -2 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 \\ 0 & 0 & 1 & -2 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 \\ 0 & 0 & 1 & -2 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 \\ 0 & 0 & 1 & -2 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 \\ 0 & 0 & 1 & -2 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 \\ 0 & 0 & 0 & 1 & -2 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 \\ 0 & 0 & 0 & 1 & -2 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 \\ 0 & 0 & 0 & 1 & -2 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 \\ 0 & 0 & 0 & 1 & -2 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 \\ 0 & 0 & 0 & 1 & -2 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 \\ 0 & 0 & 0 & 1 & -2 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 \\ 0 & 0 & 0 & 1 & -2 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 \\ 0 & 0 & 0 & 1 & -2 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 \\ 0 & 0 & 0 & 1 & -2 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 \\ 0 & 0 & 0 & 1 & -2 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 \\ 0 & 0 & 0 & 1 & -2 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 \\ 0 & 0 & 0 & 1 & -2 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 \\ 0 & 0 & 0 & 1 & -2 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 \\ 0 & 0 & 0 & 1 & -2 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 \\ 0 & 0 & 0 & 1 & -2 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 0 \end{array}

What I do find interesting though is that the constructed matrices with the properties such that every row is negative and every column is positive have certain properties that suggest some columns must have more values of '1' per say then other columns. Can such a matrix exist that every column has the same number of '1's'?

Sure
1 -2 0 0 0
0 1 -2 0 ...
0 2 -3 0 ...
0 0 1 -2 ...
0 0 2 -3 ...
0 0 3 -4 ...
0 0 0 1 ...
0 0 0 2 ...
0 0 0 3 ...
0 0 0 4 ...
0 0 0 0 ...
...

 What about one with just ones and zeros?

To go from -1 to + 1 requires two 1's, right?
-1 +0 +0 +0 +0 +0 +0 +0 +0 +0
+1 -1 -1 +0 +0 +0 +0 +0 +0 +0
+1 +0 +0 -1 -1 +0 +0 +0 +0 +0
+0 +1 +0 +0 +0 -1 -1 +0 +0 +0
+0 +1 +0 +0 +0 +0 +0 +0 ...

That is each column has a minus 1 and 2 +1's:
Row 0 has a -1 in column 0
Row 2n + 1 has a 1 in column n and a -1 in columns 4n +1 and 4n+2
Row 2n + 2 has a 1 in column n and a -1 in columns 4n+3 and 4n + 4
