- Assume a and b to be the largest known twin primes.

Let x be an integer from 0 to no limit.

Applying the following formula a^2 - b - 6x will inevitably result in an even

number [E], which lies directly between 2 prime numbers, greater than the

original a and b assumption. Finding the value of x is of course the hard part!

Is this why twin primes are inexhaustible?

Examples

a b x [E]

5 7 0 18

11 13 0 108

17 19 0 270

29 31 0 810

41 43 3 1620

71 73 0 4968

101 103 1 10092

107 109 28 11172

137 139 15 18540

149 151 2 22038

179 181 2 31848

191 193 30 36108

197 199 0 38610

227 229 10 51240

sorry, I am probably too n00b but why is that ?

maybe but i'm already lost at the first assumption.

and why concentrate on twins only ?

if the twin primes conjecture is proved, the others can be, too,

using the same type of demonstration

I simply made an observation - at no time did I claim the demonstration to be a

proof of anything and merely asked a question. But thank you for the input.

Bob

I did not not make any claim
