Local Oscillations in Moderately Dense Sequences of Primes
The distribution of differences of consecutive members of sequences of primes is investigated. A quantitative measure for oscillations among these differences is the curvature of the sequence. If the sequence is not too sparse, then sharp estimates for its curvature are provided.
