Proof of the Twin Prime Conjecture

Authors: James Edwin Rock

Let P_n be the n_th prime. For twin primes P_n – P_n-1 = 2. We exhibit formula for calculating the number of twin primes in the closed interval [P_n, P_n^2]. We prove that as P_n increases the number of twin primes in the interval [P_n, Pn^2] also increases.

Comments: 5 Pages. This replacement paper adds a ratio TPA / 2.06 column to Table 2 and Table 1 contains a comparison of the twin prime pairs formula for [743,743^2] and [19993,19993^2]. It gives a better explanation for the twin prime pairs formula.
