I've been released from prison. Before my departure, I promised a man I would help him publish his findings. He claimed to have found a pattern in prime numbers. He always said ''they all have something in common'', but I never wanted him to tell me what it was. How do I help this man publish?

you don't! that information is far too dangerous to be in the hands of mankind. learning the power of the pattern in the prime numbers has destroyed better civilizations than mankind. just forget you ever heard it!

Thanks for the sarcasm; are there maybe any journals which accept essays from amateurs? Any websites he could submit his work to?

You could post it here Number Theory  My Math Forum and get it somewhat validated or dismissed before submitting to one of the journals. There seems to be no lack of various amateur works in number theory being discussed at any given time. Reviewing the information here Advice for amateur mathematicians will probably be useful. Here https://arxiv.org/ is where a lot of amateurs will post papers to be reviewed. Last edited by skipjack; December 27th, 2016 at 03:57 PM.
