The OEIS Foundation is supported by donations from users of the OEIS and by a grant from the Simons Foundation.

 Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 56th year. In the past year we added 10000 new sequences and reached almost 9000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). Other ways to donate

 OFFSET 0,1 COMMENTS Alternatively, a(n) is the smallest positive k such that n + k is prime. - N. J. A. Sloane, Nov 18 2015 Except for a(0) and a(1), a(n) is the least k such that gcd(n!, n + k) = 1. - Robert G. Wilson v, Nov 05 2010 This sequence uses the "strictly larger" variant A151800 of the nextprime function, rather than A007918. Therefore all terms are positive and a(n) = 1 if and only if n + 1 is a prime. - M. F. Hasler, Sep 09 2015 For n > 0, a(n) and n are of opposite parity. Also, by Bertrand's postulate (actually a theorem), for n > 1, a(n) < n. - Zak Seidov, Dec 27 2018 LINKS Vincenzo Librandi, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..5000 Brăduţ Apostol, Laurenţiu Panaitopol, Lucian Petrescu, and László Tóth, Some properties of a sequence defined with the aid of prime numbers, arXiv:1503.01086 [math.NT], 2015.
