纪录片: Counting from Infinity

3000 years ago Euclid proved infinity of Prime numbers, but conjectured also infinity of twin primes :
(3,5), (5,7), (11,13)….
Some with gap of ‘4’ ( Cousin primes)
(7,11), (19,23) , (29,31)…
Gap of ‘6’ (Sexy Primes):
(23, 29)

The Twin Prime gaps (2,4,6 …) are bounded by max. 70,000,000 (min.2.)

Terence Tao mobilised the Internet community ‘Polymath Project’, using Zhang’s Sieve Method, reduce 70,000 to (hopefully) 16.
