### Can an upper bound for $r_{0}(n)$ be reached from a duality principle about the distinct primes $n$ "defines"?

Under Goldbach's conjecture, denote by $r_{0}(n)$ the smallest non negative integer $r$ such that both $n-r$ and $n+r$ are prime and by $k_{0}(n):=\pi(n+r_{0}(n))-\pi(n-r_{0}(n))$, so that $k_{0}(n)$ ...

### Can a smooth manifold be realised as the image of a smooth function?

Consider, $M$, a smooth $m$ dimensional submanifold of $\mathbf R^n$. Does there exist a smooth map $X: \mathbf{R}^m\to\mathbf R^n$ such that $M=X(\mathbf R^m)$? $X$ may have points at which the ...

### Around similar inequalities than an inequality due to Nicolas, that involve products of consecutive Ramanujan primes

This is cross-posted (and this post is a version to ask just around the veracity of Conjecture 1) as the post with identifier 3594907 and same title), that I've edited on Mathematics Stack Exchange ...

### Projective scheme over the integers

Let $X$ be a projective scheme over $Spec(\mathbb{Z})$. Let $X_{p}$ be the reduction at $p$ of $X$. If for any prime $p$, $X_{p}$ is normal, can we deduce $X$ is normal? Or any counterexamples?

### Solution to non-autonomous delay differential equation?

If you define a special function called the Lambert W function, you can explicitly solve the classic delay differential equation $x'(t) = x(t - a)$ by supposing the solution is some $\exp(\lambda t)$ ...

### Diffeomorphism induced by small perturbation

Consider the surface $S_{\epsilon}$ defined as: \begin{align} %S&=\{\vec x \in \mathbf{R}^3: x=0\}, \\ S_{\epsilon}&=\{\vec x \in \mathbf{R}^3:\epsilon (x^2 + y^2 + z^2 - 1) + x=0\}. \end{...

### Searching for cofinal subsets of directed sets subject to finite constraints

Let $(P,\leq)$ be a directed set with uncountable cofinality. For every element $p\in P$, we are given a finite set $c_p\subset P\smallsetminus \{p\}$ of "incompatible elements". We say that ...

### Counting the number of free bases of $F_n$ with elements of bounded length

Let $F$ be a free group of finite rank and fix a free generating set $X$ of $F$. Let $P_r$ denote the set of all free generating sets of $F$ whose elements have length bounded by $r$ (when considered ...

### Compact coadjoint orbits

The following statement is from the article Compact Coadjoint Orbits by John Rawnsley: If $\mathcal{O}$ is a compact coadjoint orbit for the group $G$ then there is a closed normal subgroup $H$ of $G$...

### Square-root lattices: where do they appear?

As an experimental physicist working on crystallography I'm often dealing with the reconstruction of an object from intensity data that emerge from an imaging device. In mathematics the problem is ...
