# Prime series

Why is the series of prime numbers so fascinating to both amateur and professional mathematicians?

Firstly, the apparently irregular nature of the series is fascinating – is there an understandable rule or rules that govern their distribution.

Secondly, the numbers themselves go from being as close as possible (the pairs) to large gaps….gaps that become larger and larger. Thus they appear to be “pulsed”.
