In counting primes up to x in a given arithmetic progression, one resorts to the "prime" counting function yx;q,a= n≤xn≡a modq Ln where Λ is the usual von Mangoldt function. Analogously, to count those integers with no more than k prime factors, one can use ykx;q,a =n≤xn≡a modq Lkn where Λk is the generalized von Mangoldt function defined by Λk = mu * logk. Friedlander and Goldston gave a lower bound of the correct order of magnitude for the mean square sum a modq a,q=1 yx;q,a -xfq 2 for q in the range xlogx A ≤ q ≤ x. Later, Hooley extended this range to xexpclog x ≤ q ≤ x. We obtain, in the larger range, a lower bound of the correct order of magnitude and approaching the expected asymptotic "exponentially fast" as k approaches infinity.

We show that for any integers a and m with m ≥ 1 and gcd(a,m) = 1, there is a solution to the congruence pr ≡ a (modm) where p is prime, r is a product of at most k = 17 prime factors and p, r ≤ m. This is a relaxed version of the still open question, studied by P. Erdős, A. M. Odlyzko and A. Sárközy, that corresponds to k = 1 (that is, to products of two primes).Cited by: 9.

here. Using this, one may place (a large fraction of) the primes inside a pseu-dorandom set of "almost primes" (or more precisely, a pseudorandom measure concentrated on almost primes) with positive relative density. 1. Introduction It is a well-known conjecture that there are arbitrarily long arithmetic progressions of prime numbers. DIRICHLET CHARACTERS AND PRIMES IN ARITHMETIC PROGRESSIONS 3 Let nbe a positive integer. Then (2) X ˜ mod k ˜(n) = (˚(k) if n 1 mod k 0 otherwise; where the summation is over all Dirichlet characters mod k. Let ˜, ˜0be Dirichlet characters mod k. Then (3) Xk n=1 ˜(n)˜0(n) = (˚(k) if˜= ˜0 0 otherwise: For positive integers n 1, n 2 we.

the primes contain inﬁnitely many arithmetic progressions of length 3. Computational mathematicians have also worked on the problem of ﬁnding long arithmetic progressions in the primes. In , Moran, Pritchard and Thyssen [25] found a progression of length 22 in the primes. This record was ﬁnally broken in , when Frind, Jobling. (You can look up the expectation and variance of a Beta distribution: Wikipedia lists them, for example.) $\endgroup$ – whuber ♦ Feb 18 '12 at 2 $\begingroup$ So I can change $\mathbb{E}(\bar{X})$ to $\sum^n_{i=1}\mathbb{E}(\bar{X_i})$, which I can calculate since I know the expected value of a single random variable from the Beta.

Paul Garrett: Primes in arithmetic progressions (Ap ) Proof: The characters form an orthogonal basis for L2(G), so the number of characters is the dimension of L2(G), which is jGj.

Any given arithmetic progression of primes has a finite length. InBen J.

It follows immediately that there are infinitely many AP-k for any an AP-k does not begin with the prime k, then the common difference is a. Effective lower bound for the variance of distribution of primes in arithmetic progressions Article in International Journal of Number Theory 1(1) February.

Let π(x) be the prime-counting function that gives the number of primes less than or equal to x, for any real number example, π(10) = 4 because there are four prime numbers (2, 3, 5 and 7) less than or equal to The prime number theorem then states that x / log x is a good approximation to π(x) (where log here means the natural logarithm), in the sense that the limit.

The mod 10 progressions omit two primes (namely, 2 and 5), so for, and, we subtract 1/4, 0, 3/4, and 1, respectively.

Discussion: Each of the values of that have no factor in common with gives rise to an arithmetic progression that contains infinitely many primes.
