 OFFSET 0,1 COMMENTS The lower "envelope" of the sequence is prime(n+1)^2. See also Fortune-conjecture (A005235). For some n, c=prime(n+1)^2; for others, it is larger, even not necessarily divisible by prime(n+1). E.g., at n=11, prime(11)=31 and a(11) = 1591 = 37*43 = prime(12)*prime(14), while for n=59, a(59) = 97969 = 313^2 = prime(65)^2, etc. Adding these to the suitable primorial numbers, primes are obtained. Conjecture: lim inf_{n->oo} a(n)/prime(n+1)^2 = 1 < lim sup_{n->oo} a(n)/prime(n+1)^2 = 2. - Charles R Greathouse IV and Thomas Ordowski, Apr 24 2015 Conjecture: all the terms in this sequence have exactly two prime factors. This conjecture is true for the first 133 terms. - Dmitry Kamenetsky, Jan 06 2019 LINKS Dmitry Kamenetsky, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..133 PROG (PARI) a(n) = {my(q = prod(i=1, n, prime(i))); forcomposite(c = 1, , if (isprime(q+c), return(c); ); ); } \\ Michel Marcus, May 24 2015 CROSSREFS Cf.
