(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A115091 Primes p such that p^2 divides m!+1 for some integer m<p. 2
5, 11, 13, 47, 71, 563, 613 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)



By Wilson's theorem, we know that there is an m=p-1 such that p divides m!+1. Sequence A115092 gives the number of m for each prime. Occasionally p^2 also divides m!+1. These primes seem to be only slightly more plentiful than Wilson primes (A007540). No other primes < 10^6.

There is no prime p < 10^8 such that p^2 divides m!+1 for some m <= 1200. [From F. Brunault (brunault(AT)gmail.com), Nov 23 2008]
