Ok, this will take some time to read...
 
Busy day in analytic number theory; Harald Helfgott has complemented his previous paper http://arxiv.org/abs/1205.5252 (obtaining minor arc estimates for the odd Goldbach problem) with major arc estimates, thus finally obtaining an unconditional proof of the odd Goldbach conjecture that every odd number greater than five is the sum of three primes.  (This improves upon a result of mine from last year http://terrytao.wordpress.com/2012/02/01/every-odd-integer-larger-than-1-is-the-sum-of-at-most-five-primes/ showing that such numbers are the sum of five or fewer primes, though at the cost of a significantly lengthier argument.) As with virtually all successful partial results on the Goldbach problem, the argument proceeds by the Hardy-Littlewood-Vinogradov circle method; the challenge is to make all the estimates completely effective and to optimise all parameters (which, among other things, requires a certain amount of computer-assisted computation).  [EDIT: the proof also relies on extensive numerical verifications of GRH that were performed by David Platt.]
Abstract: 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 ...

Reminds me of all the times when business says they want a modification done to an application but refuse to give guidance on the details. You know, "just come up with it". Najtańszy sposób na sportowy wydech! | The cheapest racing exhaust in the world

This guy learnt to play from the internet. Skip to 7 minutes in to see what he can do with a guitar.
