Now that I think about, and given my ignorance of the deep properties of the prime numbers, I'm not certain that the spacing of adjacent primes is in fact bounded. Perhaps some of you deep number theory thinkers can comment. Incidentally this concept is apparently given the name "Prime Gap" and has been extensively studied.

Chebyshev said it, but I'll say it again; There's always a prime between n and 2n. Then there was Paul ErdÃ¶s ... https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Erd%C5%91s Last edited by agentredlum; August 18th, 2017 at 12:40 PM.

Are made as a pure power, I call Integer nth Root of $P$, plus a $Rest$: For example taking $n=2$: $1 = 1^2+0 = 1M_2+0 $ $2= 1^2+1 = 1M_2+1 $ $3= 1^2+2 = 1M_2+2 $ $4= 2^2+0 = 2M_2+0 $ $5= 2^2+0 = 2M_2+1 $ Where $M_n=(x^n(x1)^n)$ since you can find the Integer Root as a recoursive difference using this function as Modulo: For example Square root of 5 is equal to make it modulo $M_2$: 1 . 2x1 = 1 . 51 = 4 2 . 2x1 = 3 . 43 = 1 so 2 is the Integer Square Root of 5, so 5= 2^2+1 in fact if you can't go over because: 3 . 2x1 = 5 . 15 = 4 And the same using a special trick to go in $Q$ etc... I'm writing a book on, but you find that in several of my post here. And lot must be written on Last edited by skipjack; August 21st, 2017 at 08:36 PM.

Why don't you start you own forum where you can post all your ideas and then you can post comments about how how incredible they are and how the author must be a super genius.

You've repeatedly given vague (if any) explanations of your ideas and usually include some other terminology that you've made up  undefined  in your explanation. I'm closing this thread and I will delete any further comments you make in other threads until this issue is addressed to the satisfaction of most of us. If you cannot do this  don't post. Thank you, greg1313

I've decided to reopen the thread to allow discussion of the OP by all concerned members. Aside from this, what I posted above still stands. Thank you for your patience and good evening.

I think we all agree on the point: talking of primes, the use of the word "random" is ambiguos, than is better to avoid it. Thanks ciao Stefano

Perhaps we should refrain from making all encompassing derogatory statements against the OP?
