Chen's Theorem

Chen's Theorem is a theorem developed by Chinese mathematician, Chen Jingrun.


Chen's Theorem states that any sufficiently large even number $\left(>e^{e^{36}}\right)$ can be written as the sum of:

  • two primes
  • a prime and a semiprime (a semiprime is the product of two primes)

The theorem was first stated in 1966. Tomohiro Yamada proved Chen's theorem in 2015
