 Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”). Other ways to Give

 OFFSET 1,5 COMMENTS The product of four consecutive integers + 1 is always composite (a square), so a(4) = 0. Are there any more zeros in the sequence? Since rather large numbers (up to 193 digits) are encountered in the computation, the Pocklington-Lehmer "P-1" primality test is used, as implemented in PARI 2.1.3. LINKS EXAMPLE 1*2*3*4*5 + 1 = 121 = 11*11 and 2*3*4*5*6 + 1 = 721 = 7*103 are composite, but 3*4*5*6*7 + 1 = 2521 is prime, so a(5) = 3. PROG (PARI) m=1000; for(n=1, 85, b=0; k=1; while(b<1&&k
