Combining the arguments developed in the works of D. A. Goldston, S. W. Graham, J. Pintz, and C. Y. Yildirim [Preprint, 2005, arXiv: math.NT/506067] and Y. Motohashi [Number theory in progress – A. Schinzel Festschrift (de Gruyter, 1999) 1053–1064] we introduce a smoothing device to the sieve procedure of Goldston, Pintz, and Yildirim (see [Proc. Japan Acad. 82A (2006) 61–65] for its simplified version). Our assertions embodied in Lemmas 3 and 4 of this article imply that a natural extension of… 
Close encounters among the primes

Abstract. This paper was written, apart from one technical correction, in July and August of 2013. The, then very recent, breakthrough of Y. Zhang [Zha13] had revived in us an intention to produce a
Primes in intervals of bounded length
In April 2013, Yitang Zhang proved the existence of a finite bound B such that there are infinitely many pairs of distinct primes which differ by no more than B. This is a massive breakthrough, makes
New equidistribution estimates of Zhang type
In May 2013, Y. Zhang [52] proved the existence of infinitely many pairs of primes with bounded gaps. In particular, he showed that there exists at least one h ě 2 such that the set tp prime | p` h
Variants of the Selberg sieve, and bounded intervals containing many primes
For any m≥1, let Hm denote the quantity liminfn→∞(pn+m−pn). A celebrated recent result of Zhang showed the finiteness of H1, with the explicit bound H1≤70,000,000. This was then improved by us (the
BOUNDED GAPS BETWEEN PRIMES
Recently, Yitang Zhang proved the existence of a finite bound B such that there are infinitely many pairs pn, pn 1 of consecutive primes for which pn 1 pn ¤ B. This can be seen as a massive
ON ZHANG ’ S PRIME GAPS PAPER
This result is deduced from the following result. Call an admissible set to be a finite set of integers H which avoids at least one residue class modulo p for each prime p. For any natural number k0,
Diagonal cubic forms and the large sieve
Let F (x) be a diagonal integer-coefficient cubic form in m ∈ {4, 5, 6} variables. Excluding rational lines if m = 4, we bound the number of integral solutions x ∈ [−X,X] to F (x) = 0 by OF, (X
On the Ratio of Consecutive Gaps Between Primes
In the present work we prove a common generalization of Maynard–Tao’s recent result about consecutive bounded gaps between primes and of the Erdős–Rankin bound about large gaps between consecutive
Primes in arithmetic progressions with friable indices
We consider the number π(x, y; q, a) of primes p ⩽ x such that p ≡ a (mod q ) and ( p − a )/ q is free of prime factors greater than y. Assuming a suitable form of Elliott-Halberstam conjecture, it
