It provides necessary and sufficient conditions for quadruplet prime sequences, no-prime sequences and some cases in Polignac's conjecture: prime sequences and distributions Distributions of twin prime sequences were discussed earlier in: twin prime distributions

The paper looks well written, but it seems to merely provide a more complicated way of stating what is already known about sets of odd coprimes, though I'll be gladly proven wrong in this regard.

The approach provides a description of the mechanism driving the distribution of twin primes, and importantly, other types of prime sequences as quadruplets, some Polignac's patterns and possibly others. It allows to obtain numerically verifiable bounds on the distributions of twins and other sequences. Developing it further may allow to advance toward formal proof of the bounds that could help to stand some long standing problems.
