We prove that $$ \mathop{ \lim \inf}\limits_{n \rightarrow \infty} \frac{p_{n+1}-p_{n}}{\sqrt{\log p_{n}} \left(\log \log p_{n}\right)^{2}}< \infty, $$ where$p$_{$n$}denotes the$n$th prime. Since on average$p$_{$n$+1}−$p$_{$n$}is asymptotically log_{$n$}, this shows that we can always find pairs of primes much closer together than the average. We actually prove a more general result concerning the set of values taken on by the differences$p$−$p$′ between primes which includes the small gap result above.
