"Approximating Goldbach conjecture"
The Goldbach conjecture is one of the oldest unsolved problems in the entire mathematics and, since its appearance in 1742 to nowadays, a lot of mathematicians dealt with it.
In my talk I will give an introduction to the origin of the Goldbach conjecture and then I will describe the most important developments in some problems related to it. In particular I will talk about the ternary Goldbach conjecture, the exceptional set in Goldbach's problem and the Goldbach-Linnik problem. Finally, I will give a short overview of our results which can be seen as approximations to the Goldbach-Linnik problem.
