### What would both Goldbach's conjecture and GRH tell us about the distribution of k-central numbers?

Assume Goldbach's conjecture. Then for all integer $n$ greater than 1, there exists a non negative integer $r$ such that both $n+r$ and $n-r$ are prime. I call such an $r$ a primality radius of $n$, ...

### Must a proof of the asymptotic Goldbach conjecture be effective to imply GRH?

It was shown by Hardy and Littlewood that GRH (i.e. the Generalized Riemann Hypothesis for Dirichlet L-functions) implies that every large enough odd number is the sum of three primes. Later on (circa ...

### Equivalence of Polignac to finite Goldbach?

Is Polignac's conjecture equivalent to a finite form of Goldbach? There is some discussion here as to the difference between Polignac & general Goldbach, but the similarity seems particularly ...

### Is there a hidden symmetry in the prime numbers distribution?

Under Goldbach's conjecture, let's consider once again the map $r_0\colon n\mapsto r_{0}(n)$ such that $r_{0}(n)$ is the smallest non negative integer $r$ such that both $n-r$ and $n+r$ are prime.

### Is $n = p-q$ equivalent to Goldbach's Conjecture?

One open conjecture is that every even integer greater than two is the difference of two primes. (Some superficial discussion here.)
Goldbach's conjecture states that every even integer greater than ...

### Estimating the number of twin primes of given natural configuration order

This question is a follow-up from About Goldbach's conjecture. Let
$$\mathrm{Co}_{k}(x):=\{n\le x:\mathrm{ord}_{c}(n):=\pi(\sqrt{2n-3})=k\},~~~\mathrm{co}_{k}(x):=\vert\mathrm{Co}_{k}(x)\vert$$

### Does $\pi(n+r)+\pi(n-r)$ decrease as $r$ increases?

Assume Goldbach's conjecture. Then for every large enough positive integer $n$ there exists a non negative integer $r$ such that both $n+r$ and $n-r$ are primes. Such an integer $r$ will be called a ...

### Is this weak asymptotic Goldbach's conjecture open?

Let $\tau(x)$ be the number of even numbers $2<2n<x$ which can't be written as a sum of two primes.
Goldbach's conjecture: $\tau(x) = 0$
Asymptotic Goldbach's conjecture: $\tau(x) = O(1) $

### Goldbach-type problem: the valuation of irreducible elements of a subgroup of $\mathbb{Q}_{> 0}$

Let $\phi : \mathbb{Q}_{>0} \to \mathbb{Z}$ be the group morphism defined by $\phi(p) = p$ for $p$ a prime number.
It follows that $\phi(\prod_i p_i^{n_i}) = \sum_i n_i p_i$, with $p_i$ a prime ...

### Is a certain sumset derived from primes of a certain form the set of all naturals?

OEIS A167055 Numbers n such that $12n + 5$ is prime.
$0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 7, 8, 9, 11, 12, 14, 16, 19, 21,...$ are items of OEIS $A167055$.
I conjecture that the set of the sum of every two items of this ...
