Abstract: One of the most studied problems in additive number theory, Goldbach's conjecture, states that every even integer greater than or equal to 4 can be expressed as a sum of two primes. In this paper checking of this conjecture up to $ 4 \cdot {10^{11}}$ by the IBM 3083 mainframe with vector processor is reported.
