    Help with Collatz Conjecture

    I need help in seeing if I can turn an idea into a proof, or if I am merely ruining Math with my attempt at solving this. I recently watched a youtube video on the Collatz Conjecture. The Conjecture is simple enough: Start with a positive number n and repeatedly apply these simple rules: If...

    A method to show there are infintely many Twin Primes

    This is an attempt at a Twin Prime Conjecture Proof, and is open to Peer Review. Abstract: Surfaces representing the primes and composites, the upper twin prime, the difference between squares, and the relations among them, are used to select input for a quadratic in such a way as to always...

    Goldbach Conjecture

    Take the 6-prime proof and hold the first 4 primesconstant. Varying the six prime toinfinity carries the last two with it, and does it by two, and proves theGoldbach.

    Proof of a Conjecture or Counter Examples

    {P-Q}{P^(n-1) + K1[P^(n-2)]Q + K2[P^(n-3)]Q^2 + ....+ Q^(n-1)} cannot equal C^n - B^n where all the variables are positive integers, n>2, P>Q, C>B unless all the Ks are equal to 1 or in some instances the Ks have the same value.

    Finding a conjecture relating prime numbers to divisors

    Hello I was just wondering if anyone could help me find a conjecture, theorem, hypothesis around this particular result. If p,q are prime numbers, m,n are integers, and f(r) is the number of nontrivial divisors of r (ie. not 1 or r itself). That if r=(p^m)*(q^n) (p≠q) that f(r)=(m+1)n+(m-1)...

    latin square conjecture

    I have been struggling with a conjecture about latin square, hoping maybe someone on this forum might enlighten me. Assume positive integers m,n,k and m=kn (k=2,3,...). Let's define an m-by-n matrix A with two constraints: (1) each row of A is a permutation on {1,2,...,n} (these permutations...

    Proving a conjecture in differentiation

    How do I prove the conjecture that d^(n)y ______ = k^(n) y dx^(n) The n are in the same position like 2 in the second derivative, d2y/dx2. And the n on the RHS is an exponent, but the y is not. I know to use induction but I'm stuck at proving P(k+1), d^(k+1)y ______ dx^(k+1)...

    The Lonely Runner Conjecture - Proven or Not!!

    Hello All, There is an intriguing problem called the Lonely Runner Conjecture. Its intriguing because it is easily stated yet deceptively difficult to prove. The conjecture has been open for more than 45 years and it has important implications across many areas of mathematics. Let me share the...

    Prime Conjecture

    Is the following conjecture true or false? If m is a positive odd integer such that 2m = 2 (mod. m(m-1)) then m is a prime. 27 = 2 (mod. 7x6). 243 = 2 (mod. 43x42).(Nerd)

    Area of a Triangle and Elliptic Curves - Birch and Swinnerton Dyer Conjecture

    In the book by Keith Devlin on the Millenium Problems - in Chapter 6 on the Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer Conjecture we find the following text: "It is a fairly straightforward piece of algebraic reasoning to show that there is a right triangle with rational sides having an area d if and only the...

    Let n be a natural number. Make a conjecture about the nth derivative of the function

    Let n be a natural number. Make a conjecture about the nth derivative of the function f(x) = e^(ax). That is, what is the nth derivative of e^(ax). Then use mathematical induction to prove your conjecture. My conjecture is as follows: For every natural number a, the nth derivative of the...

    Goldbach's conjecture proof?

    Hi, i was trying to look for a proof for goldbach's conjecture, but I dont seem to find it, there are some unofficial proofs that were not accepted. I wonder if it was actually proven? Thanks, Ted
