Hi guys,

Not actually a mathematics question as such (sorry) but does anyone know where i can get my hands on a copy of Chen's paper "On the representation of a large even integer as the sum of a prime and the product of at most two primes". For the life of me all i can find is references to it rather than an actual pdf copy, or even any information about the journal it is from (Sci. Sinica 16 (1973) 157-176) ie reference given below.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goldbach's_conjecture#cite_note-13

I have access to science direct and springer link but none seem to have it :( Any ideas?

Cheers

EDIT: Ok so i found that its in Scientia Sinica Series A which springerlink has going back to 1997, i'm assuming if they don't have volumes further back they're not available electronically?

Right. You'd need to find a (university) library that had it.

Although not the original paper, the proof of Chen's theorem may be found in Melvyn Nathanson's book "Additive Number Theory, The Classical Bases", Springer, 1996, p. 271 ff., ISBN 0-387-94656-X.

Actually, that's a good book to read even if you do want to read the original...
