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? (http://arxiv.org/ftp/math/papers/0609/0609486.pdf" [Broken])

    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!
