Good or less good is a matter for the mathematician to decide, how convincing it seems to be. Then again I encountered proofs which were accepted by the mathematical community, yet proved to be false. I do believe that the abovementioned theory is not of this kind, that it may be verifiable. If so, then one theorem by Littlewood is false. I do not consider that a problem since Erdos did prove Littlewood wrong back in 1948. This would be just a dejavu. It is in the interest of maths to uncover half truths or even false statements, just to make it consistent. The book by Feliksiak : the symphony of primes just fits that category. But it comes awfully hard in detailed knowledge. Maybe that is a drawback. Anonymousnoreply@blogger.com
