The linear sieve
In the next chapter, we shall prove Chen’s theorem that every sufficiently large even integer can be written as the sum of a prime and a number that is the product of at most two primes. The proof will require more sophisticated sieve estimates than those obtained from the Selberg sieve in Chapter 7.
