Abstract
The objective of this short paper is to give and prove a main theorem confirming that any interval of the special form: ]an+k + Pn, an+k+1 + Pn[ (n 2 N) does not contain any primes, for all k 2 N such that an+k+1 < a2 n+1 (an is the nth prime number & Pn is the nth prime factorial). Then we give several counterexamples of such intervals, which contain primes, when the condition (an+k+1 < a2 n+1) is not satisfied.
