The conjecture states that every even integer is expressible as the sum of two primes.
Vinogradov proved that every sufficiently large odd number is a sum of three primes. In 1997 it was shown by J.-M. Deshouillers, G. Effinger, H. Te Riele, and D. Zinoviev that, assuming a generalized Riemann hypothesis, every odd number can be represented as sum of three primes.
The conjecture was first proposed in a 1742 letter from Christian Goldbach to Euler and still remains unproved.
