twin prime conjecture
In 1940, Erdős showed that there is a constant and infinitely many primes such that where denotes the next prime after . This result was improved in 1986 by Maier; he showed that a constant can be used. The constant is called the twin prime constant.
In 1966, Chen Jingrun showed that there are infinitely many primes such that is either a prime or a semiprime.
