# William D. Banks : Consecutive primes and Beatty sequences

Beatty sequences are generalized arithmetic progressions which have been studied intensively in recent years. Thanks to the work of Vinogradov, it is known that every Beatty sequence S contains "appropriately many" prime numbers. For a given pair of Beatty sequences S and T, it is natural to wonder whether there are "appropriately many" primes in S for which the next larger prime lies in T. In this talk, I will show that this is indeed the case if one assumes a certain strong form of the Hardy-Littlewood conjectures. This is recent joint work with Victor Guo.
