FORMULA

a(n) >= n. - Seiichi Manyama, Mar 21 2018

EXAMPLE

a(4) = 4!-19 = 24-19 = 5.

MATHEMATICA

PrevPrime[ n_Integer ] := (k=n-1; While[ !PrimeQ[ k ], k-- ]; Return[ k ]); f[ n_Integer ] := (p = n! - 1; q = NextPrime[ p ]; Return[ p - q + 1 ]); Table[ f[ n ], {n, 3, 75} ]

f[n_]:=Module[{nf=n!}, nf-NextPrime[nf-1, -1]]; f/@Range[3, 90]  (* Harvey P. Dale, Mar 20 2011 *)
