on prime twins
The series is convergent if runs through all (the first members of all) prime twins. This means that even if the number of prime twins is infinitely large, they are still located in the natural sequence rather sparsely. This theorem was demonstrated by V. Brun . The convergence of a similar series for generalized twins was proved at a later date.
