We calculate the triple correlations for the truncated divisor sum λR(n). The λR(n) behave over certain averages just as the prime counting von Mangoldt function Λ(n) does or is conjectured to do. We also calculate the mixed (with a factor of Λ(n)) correlations. The results for the moments up to the third degree, and therefore the implications for the distribution of primes in short intervals, are the same as those we obtained (in the first paper with this title) by using the simpler… 
The Hardy--Littlewood--Chowla conjecture in the presence of a Siegel zero
Assuming that Siegel zeros exist, we prove a hybrid version of the Chowla and Hardy–Littlewood prime tuples conjectures. Thus, for an infinite sequence of natural numbers x, and any distinct integers
Prime numbers in logarithmic intervals
Let X be a large parameter. We will first give a new estimate for the i ntegral moments of primes in short intervals of the type (p, p + h], where p ≤ X is a prime number and h = o(X). Then we will
The primes contain arbitrarily long polynomial progressions
We establish the existence of infinitely many polynomial progressions in the primes; more precisely, given any integer-valued polynomials P1, …, Pk ∈ Z[m] in one unknown m with P1(0) = … = Pk(0) = 0,
The dichotomy between structure and randomness, arithmetic progressions, and the primes
A famous theorem of Szemeredi asserts that all subsets of the integers with positive upper density will contain arbitrarily long arithmetic progressions. There are many different proofs of this deep
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
Norm forms for arbitrary number fields as products of linear polynomials
Let K/Q be a field extension of finite degree and let P(t) be a polynomial over Q that splits into linear factors over Q. We show that any smooth model of the affine variety defined by the equation
Primes in tuples I
We introduce a method for showing that there exist prime numbers which are very close together. The method depends on the level of distribution of primes in arithmetic progressions. Assuming the

A relative Szemerédi theorem
The celebrated Green-Tao theorem states that there are arbitrarily long arithmetic progressions in the primes. One of the main ingredients in their proof is a relative Szemerédi theorem which says
Small gaps between primes
We introduce a renement of the GPY sieve method for studying prime k-tuples and small gaps between primes. This renement avoids previous limitations of the method and allows us to show that for each
