Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

Conjecture: No term is zero.

This conjecture is implied by Dickson's conjecture. - Robert Israel, Feb 13 2018

LINKS

Robert Israel, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..447

FORMULA

a(n) = A071256(A000142(n)). - Robert Israel, Feb 13 2018

MAPLE

f := proc (n) local k, t; t := factorial(n); for k from t by t do if isprime(k-1) and isprime(k+1) then return k end if end do end proc;

map(f, [`$`(1 .. 20)]); # Robert Israel, Feb 13 2018

MATHEMATICA

lmn[n_]:=Module[{k=n!, m=1}, While[AnyTrue[k*m+{1, -1}, CompositeQ], m++]; k*m]; Join[{4, 4}, Array[lmn, 20, 3]] (* Requires Mathematica version 10 or later *) (* Harvey P. Dale, Jan 27 2020 *)
