I spent about 6 hours today from 10 a.m. till 2:30 p.m. on a Friday screening the Jean film and cross referencing with my stupid hand held having seen the film earlier this week at Cubberley and chatting up a couple interesting people about post film the Cohen family production for work in progress. here ar15 sources in the excellent film:

Suppose one is given a $latex {k_0}&fg=000000$-tuple $latex {{mathcal H} = (h_1,ldots,h_{k_0})}&fg=000000$ of $latex {k_0}&fg=000000$ distinct integers for some $latex {k_0 geq 1}&fg=000000$, arranged in increasing order. When is it possible to find infinitely many translates $latex {n + {mathcal H} =(n+h_1,ldots,n+h_{k_0})}&fg=000000$ of $latex {{mathcal H}}&fg=000000$ which consists entirely of primes? The case $latex {k_0=1}&fg=000000$ is just Euclid’s theorem on the infinitude of primes, but the case $latex {k_0=2}&fg=000000$ is already open in general, with the $latex {{mathcal H} = (0,2)}&fg=000000$ case being the notorious twin prime conjecture.

On the other hand, there are some tuples $latex {{mathcal H}}&fg=000000$ for which one can easily answer the above question in the negative. For instance, the only translate of $latex {(0,1)}&fg=000000$ that consists entirely of primes is $latex {(2,3)}&fg=000000$, basically because each translate of $latex {(0,1)}&fg=000000$ must contain an even number, and the only even prime is $latex {2}&fg=000000$. More generally…
