On the distribution of primes in short intervals

  • P. X. Gallagher (a1)

One of the formulations of the prime number theorem is the statement that the number of primes in an interval (n, n + h], averaged over nN, tends to the limit λ, when N and h tend to infinity in such a way that hλ log N, with λ a positive constant.
