A recent heuristic argument based on basic concepts in spectral analysis showed that the twin prime conjecture and a few other related primes counting problems are valid. A rigorous version of the spectral method, and a proof of the more general dePolignac conjecture on the existence of infinitely many primes pairs p and p + 2k, k => 1, is proposed in this note.

Odd prime values of the Ramanujan tau function

It is shown that the odd prime values of the Ramanujan tau function are of the form LR(p,q) where p,q are odd primes, and arithmetical properties and congruences of the LR numbers are exhibited.


We verify the Hardy–Littlewood conjecture on primes in quadratic progressions on average. The results in the present paper significantly improve those of a previous paper by the authors [3].

Ramanujan sums as supercharacters

The theory of supercharacters, recently developed by Diaconis-Isaacs and André, is used to derive the fundamental algebraic properties of Ramanujan sums. This machinery frequently yields one-line

Ramanujan series for arithmetical functions

We give a short survey of old and new results in the theory of Ramanujan expansions for arithmetical functions.
