New evidence for the infinitude of some prime constellations
Thomas R. Nicely
A conjecture of Hardy and Littlewood, implying the twin-primes conjecture
and featured in the work of Arenstorf, is extended to some other prime
constellations. Computational evidence is presented in support of the
conjectures, which imply the infinitude of these constellations, including
the twin primes.
