### Can Erdős-Turán $\frac{5}{8}$ theorem be generalised that way?

Suppose for an arbitrary group word $w$ ower the alphabet of $n$ symbols $\mathfrak{U_w}$ is a variety of all groups $G$, that satisfy an identity $\forall a_1, … , a_n \in G$ $w(a_1, … , a_n) = e$. ...

### Does every power of two arise as the difference of two primes?

Conjecture: For each $n\in\mathbb N$ there are primes $q<p$ with $p-q=2^n$. Verified for $n\leq 26$: ...

### What steps have been taken so far to solve Brocard's Problem?

The equation is $$n!+1=m^2$$ where $n$ and $m$ are natural numbers. Brocard's Problem asks whether there are solutions for n other than $4, 5, 7$. The only improvement I have found that people have ...

### Show $\lim_{n\to \infty}{|A_{n}|+|A_{n-2}| \above 1.5pt |A_{n-1}|}=2$

Question: Let $A(n)$ be a finite square $n \times n$ matrix with entries $a_{ij}=1$ if $i+j$ is a prime; otherwise equals to $0$. I write $|A(n)|$ to count the number of $1$'s in $A(n)$. Is it ...

### Are there infinitely many primes in any sequence determined by a $k$ that is not a Sierpinski number?

Consider the sequence of numbers ranging over $n$ of the form $k\cdot a^n + 1$ for a fixed, odd natural number $k$. The number $k$ is considered a Sierpinski number if the sequence determined by that ...

### A mixture with ingredients of two equivalences with Riemann Hypothesis

Let $f(x)=x\cdot(\log x)^x$ for $x\geq 2$, then integrating $\log f(x)=\int_2^x f'(t)/f(t)dt$, it is easy to prove the first statement of following, and directly if we put $x=e^H_n$ and add $H_n$ the ...

### Totient summatory function

Let $\Phi(n) = \sum_{k=1}^n \phi(k)$ be the totient summatory function. Here is an interesting conjecture I've made: The ratio $\Phi(n^2)/\Phi(n)$ is an integer only for $n=1,2,3,5$ and $6$. I made a ...

### Has every finite group a minimal presentation?

For a finite group $G$ let $d(G)$ be the minimal number of generators of $G$ and let $r(G)$ be the minimal number such that $G$ has a finite presentation with $r(G)$ relators. Call a presentation with ...

### A conjecture on the closeness of twin primes

Let $p_1$ and $p_2$ be twin primes, and let $p_1-1=a_1\times b_1$ and $p_2+1=a_2\times b_2$ be such that $|b_1-a_1|$ and $|b_2-a_2|$ are minimised. Similarly, let $p_1+1=p_2-1=a\times b$ be such that ...

### To prove the existence of solution(s) of $\frac{a}{b+c}+\frac{b}{a+c}+\frac{c}{a+b}=4$

To prove if a certain equation has a solution, we do not need necessarily solve that equation. Example: Is there any point of the curve $y=\sin^2(x)/x$ between $x=0$ and $x=\pi$ so that the slope of ...

### Grimm's Weak Conjecture

On Wikipedia it says that the following weaker version of Grimm's conjecture is also still open: "A product of $k$ consecutive composite numbers has $k$ pairwise distinct prime factors." Is it true, ...
Hi it's related to the following conjecture An inequality for polynomials with positives coefficients : We have the first conjecture : Let $x,y>0$ then we have : (x+y)f\Big(\frac{x^2+...
### Minimal counterexample to $\frac{p - 1}{p^2}$-conjecture
There existed once a “folklore” conjecture that stated: Suppose $p$ is a prime. Then any finite group $G$ with $> (1 - \frac{p-1}{p^2})|G|$ elements of order $p$ has exponent $p$ This ...
