## Maybe there are lots of different sequences that make up the primes?

August 6, 2012 by primorialconjecture

Yesterday I was saying how x^2+x+k needs a twin prime to start the ball rolling and if you read the blog you’ll remember I said that it didn’t workwell for (29,31) or (59,61) twins.

One that does work is 2x^2 + k.

When k=29 then when x= 1 2x^2 = 2*1. so 2×2+29 = 31

when x=2 you get 2x^2 = 8 so 2x^2+29 = 37.

The first few terms of this sequence = 29,31,37,47,61.

Type them into OEIS and you’ll find the sequence.

Maybe the prime sequence isn’t one sequence but a myriad of different sequences. Perhaps the job of a prime nut is to identify where any particular prime belongs.
