COMMENTS

Analogous to the Fortunate numbers, but unlike them, not all terms here are prime. Many odd-indexed terms are powers of two and all even-indexed terms are prime.

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..72.

MATHEMATICA

NextPrime[ n_Integer ] := (k=n+1; While[ !PrimeQ[ k ], k++ ]; Return[ k ]); f[ n_Integer ] := (p = n!! + 1; q = NextPrime[ p ]; Return[ q - p + 1 ]); Table[ f[ n ], {n, 1, 75} ]

dfnp[n_]:=Module[{df=n!!}, NextPrime[df+1]-df]; Array[dfnp, 80] (* Harvey P. Dale, Mar 25 2012 *)
