Bits and Beyond...
Prime numbers have captured the hearts of
many mathematicians for centuries. During 18th century, mathematician
Christian Goldbach (1690-1764) wrote to
Leonhard Euler that he believed it could be
shown that every even integer greater than 2 is the sum of 2 primes.
For example, 30 = 23+7 and 36 = 13+23. Until now, this
conjecture has neither been proved or disproved.
