twin primes
Two primes are said to be twins if their difference is 2, like in the pairs (29, 31) or (977779797977, 977779797979).

So, a prime  $p$  is called twin prime if  $p+2$  or  $p-2$  is prime as well.

It is conjectured, but still not proved, that there are infinite twin primes.

Primes which do not belong to a twin pair are sometimes called isolated.

Probably all the even numbers greater than 4208 can be written as the sum of two twin primes.

The first twin pairs are (3, 5), (5, 7), (11, 13), (17, 19), (29, 31), (41, 43), (59, 61), (71, 73), (101, 103), (107, 109) more terms
