COMMENTS

There are two versions of "primorial": this is using the definition in A002110.  Robert Israel, Dec 30 2014
As of 28 February 2012, the largest known primorial prime is A002110(85586)  1 with 476311 digits, found by the PrimeGrid project (see link).  Dmitry Kamenetsky, Aug 11 2015

FORMULA

a(n) = A000720(A006794(n)).
a(n) = primepi(A006794(n)).


EXAMPLE

The 6th primorial is A002110(6) = 2*3*5*7*11*13 = 30030, and 30030  1 = 30029 is a prime, so 6 is in the sequence.
