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.
