A gentle stroll around the Goldbach's conjecture


The last years have seen the proof of many results concerning the prime numbers. We will show how these results are all related to linear equations with prime indeterminates, and from then on, recount the history of the quantitative version of the Goldbach conjecture. We will present elements in its favor, but the most striking fact is surely the frailty of such elements.
