Almost-primes in arithmetic progressions and short intervals

  • D. R. Heath-Brown (a1)

In this paper we shall investigate the occurrence of almost-primes in arithmetic progressions and in short intervals. These problems correspond to two well-known conjectures concerning prime numbers. The first conjecture is that, if (l, k) = 1, there exists a prime p satisfying
