# The Difference Between Consecutive Primes, II

@article{Baker2001TheDB, title={The Difference Between Consecutive Primes, II}, author={Roger C. Baker and Glyn Harman and Janos Pintz}, journal={Proceedings of the London Mathematical Society}, year={2001}, volume={83} }

The authors sharpen a result of Baker and Harman (1995), showing that [x, x + x0.525] contains prime numbers for large x. An important step in the proof is the application of a theorem of Watt (1995) on a mean value containing the fourth power of the zeta function. 2000 Mathematical Subject Classification: 11N05.

On Proving of Diophantine Inequalities with Prime Numbers by Evaluations of the Difference between Consecutive Primes

- Mathematics
- 2015

Using as the working hypothesis of an evaluation of the difference between primes $p_{n+1} - p_n = O(\sqrt{p_n})$ we represent in detail the proofs of Legendre's and Oppermann's conjectures.

REPRESENTING AN INTEGER AS THE SUM OF A PRIME AND THE PRODUCT OF TWO SMALL FACTORS

- Mathematics
- 2020

Let c > 0.55. Every large n can be written in the form p +ab, where p is prime, a and b are significantly smaller than x^1/2 and ab is less than n^c. This strengthens a result of Heath-Brown, which…

Primes between consecutive squares

Abstract. A well known conjecture about the distribution of primes asserts that between two consecutive squares there is always at least one prime number. The proof of this conjecture is quite out of…

Squarefree Integers And Extreme Values Of Some Arithmetic Functions

A study of the Dedekind psi function concludes that its extreme values are supported on the subset of primorial integers N_k = 2*3***p_k, where p_k is the kth prime. In particular, the inequality…

A Structure Theorem for Positive Density Sets Having the Minimal Number of 3-term Arithmetic Progressions

- Mathematics

Assuming the well-known conjecture that [x,x+x^t] contains a prime for t > 0 and x sufficiently large, we prove: For 0 0 as s -> 0. A curious feature of the proof is that Behrend's construction on…

Diophantine Inequalities as a Problem of Difference between Consecutive Primes

- Mathematics
- 2014

In the present paper, we have developed a method for solving \textit{diophantine inequalities} using their relationship with the \textit{difference between consecutive primes}.
Using this approach…

Goldbach Numbers in Short Intervals -- A Nonnegative Model Approach

- Mathematics
- 2019

We decrease the length of the shortest interval for which almost all even integers in it are the sum of two primes. This is achieved by applying a version of the Circle Method that uses two minorants…

Abstract A lower bound for πc(x), the number of primes of the form [nc] in [1, x], is given: πc(x) ⪢ x/log x. The significant point here is the longer range of c than formerly, namely 1 20 17 . The…
