Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 56th year. In the past year we added 10000 new sequences and reached almost 9000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS").

COMMENTS

Equivalently, n such that m(n!) = 2, where m(n) = mu(n+1) + mu(n+2), as mu(n!)=0 for all n>=4 (because 4=2^2 divides n!). - Rick L. Shepherd, Aug 20 2003

127 belongs to the sequence. - Serge Batalov, Feb 17 2011

EXAMPLE

8! = 40320, mu(40320) = 0, mu(40321) = 1, mu(40322) = 1, which gives 2.

98 is not a term because 98!+2 = 2.31003012014959.114951592532951.2015644865638913835753087050212028452990938458387.P78 has an odd number of factors. [Sean A. Irvine, Feb 03 2010]
