Probabilistic puzzle: toward a solution of Goldbach’s conjecture?

  • Rosario D’Amico MPS Bank, Italy


This paper aims to provide a set of considerations that allow us to see a possible solution to the problematic issue of Goldbach’s “strong” conjecture, which amounts to asserting that any even natural number greater than 2 can be written as the sum of two prime numbers that are not necessarily distinct. This is by adopting a probabilistic method by far easier attempts than the classical ones already present in literature.
