Conjecture" (World Scientific, Singapore, 1984), which reprints the paper by
Chen Jing-Run "On the representation of a large even integer as the sum of a
prime and the product of at most two primes", Scientia Sinica, XVI, pp.
This paper proves the following:-
Theorem II. There exists infinitely many primes p such that p+h is a product
of at most 2 primes, h being any even integer, and x_h(1,2) >=
This paper is one of the classic ones in all of number theory, of course, but
is inevitably a hard read...
