comment Origins of the Twin Prime Conjecture
The Dartmouth paper by Klyve in turn cites de Polignac's original paper of 1849. Since Klyve's paper is his dissertation and it's about twin primes, I'm sure he did an extensive literature before he made the claim that "The first mention of twin primes in the literature appears in de Polignac’s paper of 1849". As an additional reference, there's this page about de Polignac's conjecture at MathWorld: mathworld.wolfram.com/dePolignacsConjecture.html

@Amzoti I did. Searching through it more closely now, I see a reference to de Polignac: "The first mention of twin primes in the literature appears in de Polignac’s paper of 1849, in which he speculates about the distribution of primes." I've pulled up the reference that's cited, which you can find here: libarchive.dartmouth.edu/cdm/compoundobject/collection/dcdis/id/…

Awesome! Thanks! I look forward to sharing the video and some information about the twindragon in an upcoming post on Math Munch.

That's a great find, and it was a good option for me to have for my presentation. Ultimately I went with something else, but thanks for sharing it!

That video is awesome! Thanks for sharing it. I ended up grabbing a snapshot from it for my presentation--it was high res enough for my purposes. And I look forward to sharing the video with my students!
