I found an interesting property about the primes. I wonder if the property is existing in the literature or not.<br /><br />p is a prime number if there is only one solution to the equation, x and y being integers. (The "trivial" solution is such that x + y = p and y = x + 1)<br /><br />The equation is:<br /><br />y² - x² = p<br /><br />Thank youRenato Ximeneshttp://www.blogger.com/profile/01725746092703155752noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-12535639.post-32207018367740739682016-01-20T06:34:48.277-08:002016-01-20T06:34:48.277-08:00can any one solve this problem to me.

I found it during my play around to find Fermat's original proof of his last theorem. For some reason, the pro's are not very interested, the silence is overwhelming. For those interested, I will be happy to publish it properly here, as long as its origin is never doubted. It will also show why Fermat's last theorem (the proof) is closely coupled to the same algoritm.olafhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/05290481527334392019noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-12535639.post-17237734524467042462010-08-24T22:40:26.484-07:002010-08-24T22:40:26.484-07:00Hi Larry,
