  • This paper describes how the even Goldbach conjecture was confirmed to be true for all even numbers not larger than 4 · 1018. Using a result of Ramaré and Saouter, it follows that the odd Goldbach conjecture is true up to 8.37 · 1026. The empirical data collected during this extensive verification effort, namely, counts and first occurrences of so-called minimal Goldbach partitions with a given smallest prime and of gaps between consecutive primes with a given even gap, are used to test several… CONTINUE READING
