A partial solution to the Goldbach Conjecture

  1. Mar 1, 2004 #1
    im not trying to be a crank and give you a solution to it but im looking for the proof of Ivan Vinogradov "that every sufficiently large odd integer can be expressed as the sum of three odd primes"( quoted from here:http://primes.utm.edu/glossary/page.php?sort=Vinogradov), the original proof or a paraphrase of it will be much appreciated (for free download)?



    what i did find is this http://www.ams.org/era/1997-03-15/S1079-6762-97-00031-0/home.html but it's nor for free downloading

    if you want to read papers then you'll need to get a dvi viewer cos dvi is one of the most common formats papers a distributed in (we tend to be old fashioned in views about these things). it will be worth it in the long run to install miktex on your windows box. it comes with a dvi viewer. there are others out there too, but i never tried one successfully without a miktex installation. of course it takes either broadband or patience to download miktex. in this case i'll download them for you dvips it and send you the file

    matt, what i recieved was the dvi format of the file. i thought you said you converted it into a ps format.
