the truth about primes and triangular numbers !!
Posted: Aug 23, 2013 4:20 PM

Tommy's conjecture

***

Let t(1)=1 , t(2)=3 and t(n) be the n'th triangular number.

Let all variables be integers >= 1.

Let ... mean that we do not care about that structure.

Use the OLD definition of primes that includes 1 as a prime then :

Between t(a)-1 and t(a+1)+1 always exists at least 1 prime.

Between t(a)-1 and t(a+3)+1 always exists at least 1 prime twin.

Between t(a)-1 and t(a+2k+1)+1 always exists at least 1 prime constellation of the form(p,...,p+2k).

***
