But, the Goldbach conjecture amounts to the claim that there is a non-zero lower bound.

(2.1) The Goldbach conjecture holds if and only if for every integer n [greater than or equal to] 1, we have [g.sub.n+1] = 2n + 2.
(2.4) If for every integer n of the form n = 37k (where k is an integer [greater than or equal to] 111), we have 30[m.sub.n,1] [greater than or equal to] [g.sub.n+1], then the Mersenne primes conjecture is a special case of the Goldbach conjecture.
Property (2.0) is immediate (it suffices to use the definition of [g.sub.n+1], via the definition of [g.sub.n]); property (2.1) is obvious (it suffices to use the definition of [g.sub.n+1] (via the definiton of [g.sub.n]) and the meaning of the Goldbach conjecture), and property (2.2) is immediate (indeed, it suffices to use the definition of [m.sub.n,1]).
Recently, in 2000, some new direction of proof of Goldbach conjecture has been forwarded by Kalita .

The Goldbach conjecture, devised by historian and mathematician Christian Goldbach in 1742, proposes that every even number is the sum of two primes; for example, 8 = 3 + 5.
"Such computations prove the truth of the Goldbach conjecture for a finite set of even numbers," says Herman te Riele of the National Research Institute for Mathematics and Computer Science in Amsterdam.
