# Support Bases of Solutions of a Functional Equation Arising From Multiplication of Quantum Integers and the Twin Primes Conjecture

Chapter

## Summary

Let P be the support base of a solution Γ, with the field of coefficients of characteristic zero, of the functional equations arising from the multiplication of quantum integers discussed in [A. Borisov, M. Nathanson, Y. Wang, Quantum integers and cyclotomy, J. Number Theory (to appear); M. Nathanson, A functional equation arising from multiplication of quantum integers, J. Number Theory, 103(2), 214–233 (2003)]. It is known from the work of Nathanson as well as our work that there is a close relationship between P and the constructibility of Γ from quantum integers. In this paper, we prove that if the Twin Primes conjecture holds, then Γ is constructible from quantum integers if P contains infinitely many pairs of twin primes. This shows, in particular, that if the Twin Primes conjecture holds, then Γ is constructible from quantum integers whenever P has finite complement.
