Sun Zhiwei (Chinese: 孙智伟; pinyin: Sūn Zhìwěi; Wade–Giles: Sun Chih-wei, born October 16, 1965) is a Chinese mathematician, working primarily in number theory, combinatorics, and group theory. He is a professor at Nanjing University.
Sun proved Sun's curious identity in 2002. In 2003, he presented a unified approach to three topics of Paul Erdős in combinatorial number theory: covering systems, restricted sumsets, and zero-sum problems or EGZ Theorem.
With Stephen Redmond, he posed the Redmond–Sun conjecture in 2006.
In 2013, he published a paper containing many conjectures on primes, one of which states that for any positive integer there are consecutive primes not exceeding such that , where denotes the -th prime.
