# The ternary Goldbach conjecture is true

@article{Helfgott2013TheTG, title={The ternary Goldbach conjecture is true}, author={H. Helfgott}, journal={arXiv: Number Theory}, year={2013} }

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 Goldbach conjecture and the binary, or strong, Goldbach conjecture had their origin in an exchange of letters between Euler and Goldbach in 1742. We will follow an approach based on the circle method, the large sieve and exponential sums. Some ideas coming from Hardy, Littlewood and Vinogradov are… Expand
