Abstract : The first table shows the distribution of differences between successive primes, as well as the first occurrence of each difference. The second table exhibits every difference greater than 100 with the lower prime of the pair being printed. The third table shows, for every 50,000 natural numbers, the following information: (1) The number of primes in the indicated range; (2) The last prime to be found in the range; (3) The number of occurrences of triplets having the difference pattern 2,4; (4) The number of occurrences of triplets having the difference pattern 4,2; (5) The number of occurrences of quartets having the difference pattern 2,4,2. The fourth table displays explicitly the lowest prime of each four having a 2,4,2 difference pattern. The fifth table lists the number of occurrences of twin primes in each range of 100,000 natural numbers.
