COMMENTS

a(n) < (prime(n))^3 yields an infinity of twin primes (it is sufficient, if this inequality holds for an arbitrary infinite subsequence n = n_k). For a proof, see the Shevelev link (Remark 8).
The author apparently claims to have proved the infinitude of twin primes. No alleged proof has been accepted by the mathematical community.  Jens Kruse Andersen, Jul 13 2014
In the statistical part of my link (Section 14), using the Chinese Remainder and Tolev's theorems, I reduced the supposition of the finiteness of twin primes to an arbitrarily long coinflipping experiment in which only "heads" appear. There I gave only a "demonstration" of the infinity of twin primes. In the analytical part (Sections 1518) I proved unconditionally till now only Theorem 13.  Vladimir Shevelev, Jul 22 2014
