COMMENTS

Conjectures: (1) Sequence is infinite. (2) For every n there are infinitely many arithmetic progressions with n successive primes.

Both conjectures follow from Dickson's conjecture. [Charles R Greathouse IV, Mar 14 2011]

EXAMPLE

a(11) = 1893245380950 because all eleven numbers 1*1893245380950 + 1, 2*1893245380950 + 1, 3*1893245380950 + 1, ..., 10*1893245380950 + 1 & 11*1893245380950 + 1 are prime and 1893245380950 is the smallest number with such property.

MATHEMATICA

a[n_] := Block[{k = If[n < 4, 1, 6], s}, s = k; While[! AllTrue[k Range[n] + 1, PrimeQ], k += s]; k]; Array[a, 8] (* Giovanni Resta, Mar 31 2017 *)
