COMMENTS

The first 169 terms are primes. Are all terms primes? See links for similar sequences.

Note that g is not the usual "nextprime" function. If the usual nextprime function is used, we get A286296.

EXAMPLE

a(4) = 5 because Fibonacci(1)*Fibonacci(2)*Fibonacci(3)*Fibonacci(4) = 1*1*2*3 = 6, g(6+2) = 11, and 11 - 6 = 5.
