# The Ternary Goldbach Problem

@article{HeathBrown1985TheTG, title={The Ternary Goldbach Problem}, author={Roger Heath-Brown}, journal={Revista Matematica Iberoamericana}, year={1985}, volume={1}, pages={45-59} }

The object of this paper is to present new proofs of the classical ternary theorems of additive prime number theory. Of these the best known is Vinogradov's result on the representation of odd numbers as the sums of three primes; other results will be discussed later. Earlier treatments of these problems used the Hardy-Littlewood circle method, and are highly analytical. In contrast, the method we use here is a (technically) elementary deduction from the Siegel-Walfisz Prime Number Theory. It…

We prove that if A is a subset of the primes, and the lower density of A in the primes is larger than 5/8, then all sufficiently large odd positive integers can be written as the sum of three primes…

An Elementary Approach to the Twin Primes Problem
