Rice University Summer Institute of Statistics Study of the distances and increments between prime numbers by modular segregation and extreme value theory Research group: Jenny M. Fries Brandon M. Perpich Matthew E. Pragel Tahira N. Saleem Project Advisor: Dr. Javier Rojo

2
Conjectures A Weibull or exponential distribution models the distances and increments between consecutive primes when separated modulo six. The extreme values over a certain threshold follow a generalized pareto distribution. The number of distances congruent to two and four modulo six approach a limit. The waiting times between extreme values follow a Poisson process.
