A mean value theorem on the binary Goldbach problem and its application. (English) Zbl 1188.11050

Summary: We study the binary Goldbach problem with one prime number in a given residue class, and obtain a mean value theorem. As an application, we prove that for almost all sufficiently large even integers \(n\) satisfying \(n \not\equiv 2 \pmod 6\), the equation \(p_{1} + p_{2} = n\) is solvable in prime variables \(p_{1}, p_{2}\) such that \(p_{1} + 2 = P_{3}\), and for every sufficiently large odd integer \(\bar n\) satisfying \(\bar n \not\equiv 1 \pmod 6\), the equation \(p_{1} + p_{2} + p_{3} = {\bar n}\) is solvable in prime variables \(p_{1}, p_{2}, p_{3}\) such that \(p_{1} + 2 = P_{2}\), \(p_{2} + 2 = P_{3}\). Here \(P_{k}\) denotes any integer with no more than \(k\) prime factors, counted according to multiplicity.
