The movie come across with Goldbach’s conjecture, this is one of the well know and the oldest unsolved problem in number theory.

It states that: every even integer which is greater than 2 can be expressed as the sum of two primes number.

And the best result is done by Chen Jimgrun(2002) , and named Chen’s theorem.

after all, good luck for exam
