Project: Exploration of Alternative Sets Adhering to the Goldbach Conjecture

The Goldbach conjecture states that all even integers are the sum of two odd primes. Although this result seems self-evident, it remains one of the oldest unproven conjectures in mathematics. I will be exploring a variety of alternatives to the set of primes. These include:

  • The set of primes with all twin primes removed
  • The set of primes with all prime triplets removed
  • Various sets of non-prime odd integers
