# Questions tagged [prime-constellations]

On certain subsets of prime numbers which are consecutive and close. Prime twins p and p+2, as well as p-2,p,p+4, are constellations. Also related are admissible sets in number theory, which are sets A of integers a_i such that there may be an integer t with many or all of t+a_i being prime. This has ties to prime gaps and additive number theory

### What about a second Hardy–Littlewood conjecture for Beatty primes?

I'm curious to know about if a suitable variant of the second Hardy–Littlewood conjecture (this corresponding Wikipedia Second Hardy–Littlewood conjecture) is feasible for Beatty primes. As in the ...

### On a coprime generalization of Cramer's conjecture

Given a large enough integer $n\in\Bbb N$ and a real $r\in\big(0,\frac12\big]$ and $n_1\in\Bbb N_{> n}$ is the smallest integer such that $n_1=AB$ for two coprime integers $A$ bigger than but close ...

### What is the narrowest interval I=[a,b] such that there are infinitely prime gaps of size in I?

Polymath8b project allowed, building on Zhang's 2013 breakthrough, to prove that there are infinitely prime gaps of size less or equal to 600. Under the generalized Elliott-Halberstam conjecture, one ...

### Are prime gaps of even index essentially larger than those of odd index?

Let $g_{n}:=p_{n+1}-p_{n}$ be the $n$- th prime gap, and let's introduce the following summatory functions: $$G_{1}(x):=\sum_{1\leq n\leq x}g_{2n-1}$$ $$G_{2}(x):=\sum_{1\leq n\leq x}g_{2n}$$. Let's ...

### Methods for searching for prime generating polynomials

I am currently using a non-systematic, pseudo-random method for finding prime-generating polynomials, based on the Bateman-Horn method for finding likely candidates, and then narrowing down. I have ...

### Does data suggest $| \pi_2 (n) - 2\Pi \int_2^n \frac{dx}{\ln(x)^2} | < \ln(n+2)^2 \sqrt (n+2)$?

Let $\Pi$ be the twin prime constant and $\pi_2(n)$ the twin prime counting function. Define $$t(n) = \left| \pi_2(n) - 2 \Pi \int_2^n \frac{dx}{\ln(x)^2} \right|$$ Is it consistent with current ...

### Has this formula for $G_{k}:=\lim\inf_{n\to\infty}p_{n+k}-p_{n}$ been conjectured?
I give here a heuristics that suggests that the quantity $\displaystyle{G_{k}:=\liminf_{n\to\infty}p_{n+k}-p_{n}}$ should be approximately equal to $k(1+H_{k})$, where $H_{k}$ is the $k$-th harmonic ...
