COMMENTS

A163212, Wilson quotients (A007619: ((p-1)!+1)/p) which are primes, is a subsequence. Corresponding numbers n such that ((n-1)! + 1)/n is prime are listed in A050299 = {1, 5, 7, 11, 29, 773, 1321, 2621, ...}. a(6) has 1893 digits. a(7) has 3545 digits. a(8) has 7817 digits.

Except for a(1) = 2, same as A163212. - Jonathan Sondow, May 20 2013
