EXAMPLE

3-1= 2, 3*2-1=5, 3*2*2 -1=11 etc. are primes.

PROG

(PARI) lista(nn) = {v = vector(nn); for (n=1, nn, v[n] = 2; while (! isprime(prod(i=1, n, v[i])-1), v[n]++); print1(v[n], ", "); ); } \\ Michel Marcus, Oct 31 2014

(PARI) first(n) = my(res=vector(n), pp=1, t); for(i = 1, n, t = 2; while(!isprime(pp * t - 1), t++); pp *= t; res[i]=t); res \\ David A. Corneth, Oct 19 2018
