Let $d_n = p_{n+1} - p_n$, where $p_n$ denotes the $n$th smallest prime, and let $R(T) = \log T \log_2 T\log_4 T/(\log_3 T)^2$ (the "Erd{\H o}s--Rankin" function). We consider the sequence $(d_n/R(p_n))$ of normalized prime gaps, and show that its limit point set contains at least $25\%$ of nonnegative real numbers. We also show that the same result holds if $R(T)$ is replaced by any "reasonable" function that tends to infinity more slowly than $R(T)\log_3 T$. We also consider "chains" of…

Let pn denote the n-th prime, and for any $$k \geqslant 1$$ and sufficiently large X, define the quantity \displaystyle G_k(X) := \max _{p_{n+k} \leqslant X} \min ( p_{n+1}-p_n, \dots ,

The main new ingredient is a generalization of a hypergraph covering theorem of Pippenger and Spencer, proven using the R\"odl nibble method.

We show that at least 1/3 of positive real numbers are in the set of limit points of normalized prime gaps. More precisely, if pn denotes the n th prime and L is the set of limit points of the
Large Gaps Between Primes
Let p n be the n -th prime, and deﬁne the maximal prime gap G ( x ) as G ( x ) = max p n ≤ x ( p n +1 − p n ) . We give a summary of the lower and upper bounds that have been obtained for G ( x )

Let pn denote the n th smallest prime number, and let L denote the set of limit points of the sequence {(pn+1−pn)/logpn}n=1∞ of normalized differences between consecutive primes. We show that, for

We discuss recent advances on weak forms of the Prime $k$-tuple Conjecture, and its role in proving new estimates for the existence of small gaps between primes and the existence of large gaps

The Twin Prime Conjecture asserts that there should be infinitely many pairs of primes which differ by 2. Unfortunately this long-standing conjecture remains open, but recently there has been several
