 A064237 Numbers n such that n! + 1 is divisible by a square. 6
 4, 5, 7, 12, 23, 229 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)
 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS 229 is another term because 613^2 divides 229!+1. See A115091 for primes whose square divides m!+1 for some m. An examination of the factorizations of m!+1 for m<=100 found no additional squares. - T. D. Noe, Mar 01 2006 562 is also a term because 562!+1 is divisible by 563^2. - Vladeta Jovovic, Mar 30 2004 Comment from Francois BRUNAULT, Nov 23 2008: A web search reveals that for 1 <= n <= 228 there are 82 values of n for which n! + 1 has not been completely factored (the smallest is n=103), so showing that 229 and 562 are indeed the next two terms will be a huge task. I checked that n!+1 is not divisible by p^2 for n <= 1000 and prime p < 10^8. It is very likely that 229 and 562 are the next two terms, but this has not yet been proved. - Nov 29 2008 Contains A007540(n)-1 for all n.  That sequence is conjectured to be infinite. - Robert Israel, Jul 04 2016 This sequence includes A146968 (solutions of Brocard's problem). -  Salvador Cerdá, Mar 08 2016 I may be wrong, but perhaps it is not yet proved that there are no terms between 23 and 228? - N. J. A. Sloane, Jul 24 2017 LINKS Hisanori Mishima, Factorizations of m!+1 EXAMPLE 4 is in the sequence because 4! + 1 = 5^2. 5 is in the sequence because 5! + 1 = 11^2. 6 is not in the sequence because 6! + 1 = 721 7 is in the sequence because 7! + 1 = 71^2. 12 is in the sequence because 12! + 1 = 13^2 * 2834329. 23 is a term because 23!+1 =47^2*79*148139754736864591. 229 and 562 are terms because 229!+1 = 613^2 * 38669 * 1685231 * 3011917759 * (417-digit composite) 562!+1 = 563^2 * 64467346976659839517037 * (1275-digit composite) MAPLE remove(t -> numtheory:-issqrfree, [\$1..50]); # Robert Israel, Jul 04 2016 MATHEMATICA Flatten[Position[MoebiusMu[Range!+1], 0]]; (* T.
