COMMENTS

It is known that prime(k) <= k*(k+1) for any positive integer k.  The conjecture in A235613 implies that the sequence has infinitely many terms.

Conjecture: This sequence contains infinitely many primes.

EXAMPLE

a(1) = 2 since 1*2 - prime(1) = 0 is not prime, but 2*3 - prime(2) = 3 is prime.

a(2) = 3 since 3*4 - prime(3) = 7 is prime.

a(3) = 4 since 4*5 - prime(4) = 13 is prime.
