"Vinogradov's theorem in twin almost primes"

An old theorem of Hardy-Littlewood and Vinogradov says that all large odd integers can be written as a sum of three primes; this is the ternary version of the Goldbach conjecture. Recent breakthroughs by Zhang and by Maynard show that there are infinitely many primes with a close neighboring prime. In this talk, I will discuss a hybrid version of these two results, and the focus will be on the underlying ideas coming from both additive combinatorics and sieve theory.
This is joint work with Kaisa Matomaki.
