COMMENTS

The only known values of n such that n!+1 is a perfect square are 4, 5 and 7. Paul Leyland, et al. have found no other solutions for n <= 1 million (see link). For 1 <= n <= 11, n!+1 is within 1000 of being a square. Is there another n such that n!+1 <= "1000 away" from being a perfect square?

EXAMPLE

a(5)=0 because 5!+1 is a square. a(8)=80 because 8!+1 = 40321 and the next

larger square is 40401, so 40401-40321 = 80.
