COMMENTS

For n > 1, n! cannot be a perfect square. Proof: All exponents of the prime factors of a square are even. But in the factorization of n! at least one of the primes will appear only once due to Bertrand's Postulate which says there is always a prime between m and 2m.

EXAMPLE

a(9)=67 because 9!+729 = 363609 = 3^4*67^2 is a square with largest prime
factor of 67.
