COMMENTS

Let S(n)=sum_{i=0,..n-1} (i!)^2. Note that 6 divides S(n) for n>1. For prime p=20879, p divides S(p-1). Hence p divides S(n) for all n >= p-1 and all prime values of S(n)/6 are for n < p-1. These n yield provable primes for n <= 93. No other n < 4000.

No other n < 8000. [From T. D. Noe, Jul 31 2008]
