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

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 unsolvedExpand
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 aExpand
Refined Goldbach conjectures with primes in progressions.
We formulate some refinements of Goldbach's conjectures based on heuristic arguments and numerical data. For instance, any even number greater than 4 is conjectured to be a sum of two primes with oneExpand
An Algorithmic Proof of the Twin Primes Conjecture and the Goldbach Conjecture
Abstract. This paper introduces proofs to several open problems in number theory, particularly the Goldbach Conjecture and the Twin Prime Conjecture. These two conjectures are proven by using aExpand
The Goldbach Conjecture
The binary Goldbach conjecture asserts that every even integer greater than $4$ is the sum of two primes. In order to prove this statement, we begin by introducing a kind of double sieve ofExpand

Is Goldbach Conjecture true
We answer the question positively. In fact, we believe to have proved that every even integer $2N\geq3\times10^{6}$ is the sum of two odd distinct primes. Numerical calculations extend this resultExpand
A GENERALIZATION OF GOLDBACH ’ S CONJECTURE
