Table of n, a(n) for n=1..11.

EXAMPLE

For n=2, 2!! + 2 - 1 = 2 + 2 - 1 = 3, which is prime;

for n=4, 4!! + 4 - 1 = 4*2 + 4 - 1 = 11, which is prime.

MAPLE

SFACT:= proc(n) local i, j, k; for k from 1 by 1 to n do i:=k; j:=k-2; while j >0 do i:=i*j; j:=j-2; od: if isprime(i+k-1) then print(i+k-1); fi; od: end: SFACT(550);
