Twin prime formulas ?!

((y^2-x^2)^n+x (x-y)^n+y (x-y)^n)/((x-y) (x+y)) = 4^(-n) (x^2-y^2)^n

n out of N

The system gives some twin prime solutions for x,y

Where can i find better ones?

Math Focus: primes of course
seems like overkill. From OEIS A014574 comments, TP pairs can be found from centers n where sigma(n-1)=phi(n+1). An example is 1260768 yielding (1260767,1260769). Pari and other programs have those functions (for Pari, sigma, eulerphi)
