Twin prime numbers are two prime numbers which have the difference of 2 exactly. In other words, twin primes is a pair of prime that has a prime gap of two. Sometimes the term twin prime is used for a pair of twin primes; an alternative name for this is prime twin or prime pair. Up to date there is no any valid proof/disproof for twin prime conjecture. Through this research paper, my attempt is to provide a valid proof for twin prime conjecture.

Comment: The title has been changed. And previously I disproved the Twin Prime Conjecture. But with this new research paper, I have proved the Twin Prime Conjecture. That means I have proved that 'There are infinitely many Twin Prime Numbers'. But with the previous paper that you have already uploaded with, I did prove that there are 'Finitely many Twin Prime Numbers'. But that previous disproof is wrong. Therefore I have ended up with this new paper which proves that 'there are infinitely many twin prime numbers'. Therefore compare to this new correct paper (that I am sending you now) with previous paper that you have already, the title and the content have been changed.
