COMMENTS

a(4) = 125411328001 and the 65-digit a(5) have been certified prime with Primo. Any additional terms are too big to include here. a(3) = 13 and a(4) have twin primes, 11 and 125411327999 (also certified prime with Primo). No other primes of the form 0!*1!*2!*...*n! - 1 exist for n < 108.

FORMULA

a(k) = 1 + 0!*1!*2!*...*A073827(k)!.

EXAMPLE

a(0) = 1 + 0! (0=A073827(0)) = 1 + 1 = 2. a(1) = 1 + 0!*1! (1=A073827(1)) = 1 + 1*1 = 2. a(4) = 1 + 0!*1!*2!*3!*4!*5!*6!*7! (7=A073827(4)) = 1 + 1*1*2*6*24*120*720*5040 = 125411328001

PROG

(PARI) pr=1; for(n=0, 115, pr=pr*n!; if(isprime(pr+1), print1(pr+1, ", ")))
