COMMENTS

p divides a(p-1) for prime p = {2, 5, 13, 37, 463, ...} which apparently coincides with A064384(n) = {2, 5, 13, 37, 463, ...} Primes p such that p divides 0!-1!+2!-3!+...+(-1)^{p-1}(p-1)!. - Alexander Adamchuk, Jun 14 2007

GCD(a(n), a(n+2)) = A124779(n) is either 1 or a prime 2, 5, 13, 37, 463, ... = A064384. - Jonathan Sondow, Jun 12 2007

For proofs of Adamchuk's and my Comments, see the link "The Taylor series for e ...". - Jonathan Sondow, Jun 18 2007
