COMMENTS

Smallest prime of the form: 1 + product of n terms of an arithmetic progression with first term 1.

Conjecture: All terms exist.

If n! + 1 is prime (A002981) then a(n) = A088332(n). - Hugo Pfoertner, Nov 18 2004

FORMULA

a(n) = 1 + Product_{i = 0..n-1} (1 + i*A084726(n)). - David Wasserman, Jan 03 2005

EXAMPLE

a(1) = 2 = 1 + 1;

a(4) = 281 = 1*4*7*10 + 1 (1*2*3*4 + 1 = 25 is composite);

a(5) = 76561 = 1*8*15*22*29 + 1.

MAPLE

A084727 := proc(n) local k, p: for k from 1 do p:=1+mul(1+j*k, j=0..n-1): if(isprime(p))then return p: fi: od: end: seq(A084727(n), n=1..16); # Nathaniel Johnston, Jun 26 2011
