Hints
(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A088258 Factorials F which have at least one prime neighbor, i.e., F+1 or F-1 or both are primes. 3
1, 2, 6, 24, 720, 5040, 39916800, 479001600, 87178291200, 10888869450418352160768000000, 265252859812191058636308480000000, 263130836933693530167218012160000000 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)

COMMENTS

Conjecture: sequence is infinite. But there are finitely many members which are sandwiched between twin primes.

FORMULA

a(n) = A088412(n)! = A000142(A088412(n)). - Robert Israel, Aug 25 2016

EXAMPLE

2 is in the sequence because 2 + 1 is prime.

6 is in the sequence because both 6 - 1 and 6 + 1 are prime.

24 is in the sequence because 24 - 1 is prime.

MAPLE
