Abstract

Let C = {Cn}n≥1 be an arbitrary increasing sequence of natural numbers. By πC(n) we denote the number of the terms of C being not greater than n (we agree that πC(0) = 0). In the first part of the paper we propose six different formulae for Cn (n = 1, 2, …), which depend on the numbers πC(k) (k = 0, 1, 2, …). Using these formulae, in the second part of the paper we obtain three different explicit formulae for the n-th prime pn, which are the first main result of the present research. In the third part of the paper, using the formulae from the first part, we propose six explicit formulae for the n-th term of the sequence of twin primes: 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19,… – the second main result of the paper. The last three of them are main ones for the twin primes.
