<p>Agreeing to pay £50,000 for something worth £2 wouldn't win you any haggling competitions. In mathematics, however, a similar result can bring you international acclaim. Mathematics can be a lot like haggling: if you can't get the answer you want, you try to get as close as possible. In the case of the famous <em>twin prime conjecture</em> the answer you want is 2. Recent results claim to have managed just over 50,000, but they are causing quite a stir.
That's because the gap between 2 and 50,000 is a whole lot smaller than the gap between 50,000 and infinity. </p><p><a href="https://plus.maths.org/content/twins-move-within-reach" target="_blank">read more</a></p>https://plus.maths.org/content/twins-move-within-reach#commentsnumber theorytwin prime conjecturetwin primesTue, 25 Jun 2013 09:56:49 +0000mf3445914 at https://plus.maths.org/contentElusive twins
