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

Euclides' sieve

This is probably a well-known problem. Given a set or multiset of natural numbers let us construct its "Euclides" closure: on each step we take all possible products $P_i$ of the elements in the set, ...

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 ...

Is the conjunction of Goldbach and NFPR conjecture actually equivalent to Hardy-Littlewood k-tuple conjecture?

In this previous question of mine I introduce under Goldbach's conjecture the notation $ r_{0}(n) : =\inf\{r\geq 0,(n-r,n+r)\in\mathbb{P}^{2}\} $ as well as the related so-called NFPR conjecture ...

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 ...

Does the proof of Conjectures B and D of Hardy and Littlewood have any implication on the generalized Riemann hypothesis they used?

Does the proof of Conjectures B and D of Hardy and Littlewood have any implication on the generalized Riemannn hypothesis they used? In their paper, Some problems of 'Partitio numerorum'; III - On ...

What about series involving strong primes?

I know about the importance in analytic number theory of the sutdy of series involving prime numbers or constellations of prime numbers, for example, if I am not wrong, major theorems are Mertens' ...

Are the elements in the n-th row of the first matrix a permutation of the elements in the n-th row of the second matrix?

From my previous questions here and here the following two matrices arise for twin primes and cousin primes from Dirichlet convolution: For $h=2$ twin primes: $$T_2(n,m)=\sum\limits_{\substack{k=1 \\...

What about an alternative formulation for different prime constellations in the spirit of Suzuki's theorem for twin primes?

It is known that the twin prime conjecture is a special case of the $k$-tuple conjecture. See if you want the article with title k-Tuple Conjecture from the encyclopedia Wolfram MathWorld. On the ...
