Almost-primes represented by quadratic polynomials.

Lemke Oliver, Robert J.

Let G(x) be an irreducible polynomial with integer coefficients. It is conjectured that the set {n ∈ N : G(n) is prime} is infinite for most G(x) If Pr denotes the set of squarefree positive integers with at most r prime factors, we consider the set {n ∈ N : G(n) ∈ Pr} with the goal of showing that it is infinite for a suitable choice of r. Considerable work has been done on this problem, with the... read more
