Dear friends.
I beg your pardon. I commited a serious error.
I was manipulating Dusart inequalities: x /(log(x) - 1) < Pi(x) ; X > 5392
and Pi(x) < x / (log(x) - 1.1) ; x > 60435
Then, by an algebraic error I arrived at that false conclusion.
If the difference of those inequalities could be < sqr(p(n)) then the Riemman
Hypothesis would follow.
The proposition is true only for p(n) < 5 x 10^6
