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…

Major arcs for Goldbach's problem
The ternary Goldbach conjecture, or three-primes problem, asserts that every odd integer n greater than 5 is the sum of three primes. The present paper proves this conjecture. Both the ternary
A New Proof of Vinogradov's Three Primes Theorem
We give a new proof of Vinogradov's three primes theorem, which asserts that all sufficiently large odd positive integers can be written as the sum of three primes. Existing proofs rely on the theory
The ternary Goldbach conjecture is true
The ternary Goldbach conjecture, or three-primes problem, asserts that every odd integer $n$ greater than $5$ is the sum of three primes. The present paper proves this conjecture. Both the ternary
The ternary Goldbach problem
The ternary Goldbach conjecture, or three-primes problem, states that every odd number n greater than 5 can be written as the sum of three primes. The conjecture, posed in 1742, remained unsolved
Minor arcs for Goldbach's problem
The ternary Goldbach conjecture states that every odd number n>=7 is the sum of three primes. The estimation of sums of the form \sum_{p\leq x} e(\alpha p), \alpha = a/q + O(1/q^2), has been a

SCHOOL OF MATHEMATICS AND STATISTICS HONOURS PROJECT TITLE : The Circle Method Applied to Goldbach ’ s Weak Conjecture
Additive number theory is the branch of number theory that is devoted to the study of representations of integers subject to various arithmetic constraints. One of, if not, the most popular question
A Density Version of the Vinogradov Three Primes Theorem
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
Abstract.Hardy-Littlewood  conjectured an asymptotic formula for the number of prime pairs (twin primes) (p, p+2d) with p+2d≤y, where d ∈ N is fixed and y → ∞. Up to now, no one has been able to
SOME SINGULAR SERIES AVERAGES AND THE DISTRIBUTION OF GOLDBACH NUMBERS IN SHORT INTERVALS
• Mathematics
• 1995
In this paper we shall be concerned with the question of the existence of Goldbach numbers in short intervals and the asymptotic formula for the number of representations of the even integers in a
