Default Prime sequences and gaps: conditions and heuristics

Maybe this material can be of interest to researchers, both theoretical and numerical in prime gap distributions. 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

As the layman I am, I'm having a surprisingly difficult time understanding this.
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.

Interesting article. Twin primes are full of great patterns. They are very cool.

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.
