Goldbach's Conjecture

  1. Mar 6, 2007 #1
    I was under the impression that Goldbach's Conjecture is still an open question in mathematics.

    Then what is it that the following three papers claim to do? (1, 2, 3)

    Thanks for clearing up my confusion.

    It's still an open problem as far as I'm aware. The thing about arXiv is it isn't peer-reviewed, so the papers you linked to could simply be BS (and probably are).

    OK. I suspected that the papers were BS, but I wasn't sure if arXiv was peer-reviewed. Thanks!
