COMMENTS

{11, 13, 17, 19} is the only prime quadruplet {p, p+2, p+6, p+8} of the form {Q-4, Q-2, Q+2, Q+4} where Q is a product of a pair of twin primes {q, q+2} (for prime q = 3) because numbers Q-2 and Q+4 are for q>3 composites of the form 3*(12*k^2-1) and 3*(12*k^2+1) respectively (k is an integer). Conjecture: {11, 13, 17, 19} is the only prime quadruplet {p, p+2, p+6, p+8} of the form {q*(nextprime(q))-4, q*( nextprime(q))-2, q*( nextprime(q))+2, q*( nextprime(q))+4} where q is a prime (for prime q = 3). - Jaroslav Krizek, Jul 07 2017
