      That's a good remark.

      It also implies that either there is an infinite number of twin primes, or
      the formula is wrong.

      PS: ";-)" means "(or both)" - of course.

        We may also obtain Pi by taking products over primes,
        having regard to their residues modulo 3 or 4:

        prod(prime p > 2, 1 - if(p%4==1,1,-1)/p) = 4/Pi
        prod(prime p > 2, 1 + if(p%4==1,1,-1)/p) = 2/Pi
        prod(prime p > 3, 1 - if(p%3==1,1,-1)/p) = 2*sqrt(3)/Pi
        prod(prime p > 3, 1 + if(p%3==1,1,-1)/p) = 3*sqrt(3)/(2*Pi)

        What is hard to believe about Dimitris' numerology
        is that he takes a residue-dependent product over
        only /twin/ primes.
