The distance between consecutive prime numbers, when it equals 4 the white color is used [La distance entre les nombres premiers consécutifs, lorsqu'elle est égale à 4 la couleur blanc est utilisée].




Each point of the horizontal axis displays a prime number P (from P=2 -left- to P=28657 -right-). The length of each vertical segment is proportional to the difference D between the related prime number P and its right neighbour (the first prime number greater than P). The so-called twin prime numbers are couples {P,P+2} (D=2).
