Prime Number Conjecture

Chris Gilbert Waltzek *
Northcentral University, USA


This paper builds on Goldbach’s weak conjecture, showing that all primes to infinity are composed of 3 smaller primes, suggesting that the modern definition of a prime number may be incomplete, requiring revision. The results indicate that prime numbers should include 1 as a prime number and 2 as a composite number, adding a new dimension to the most fundamental of all integers.
