Abstract
We report a rigorous theory to show the origin of the unexpected periodic behavior seen in
the consecutive differences between prime numbers. We also check numerically our findings to
ensure that they hold for finite sequences of primes, that would eventually appear in
applications. Finally, our theory allows us to link with three different but important topics: the
Hardy­Littlewood conjecture, the statistical mechanics of spin systems, and the celebrated
