A139056 Numbers k for which (k!-3)/3 is prime. 56
4, 6, 12, 16, 29, 34, 43, 111, 137, 181, 528, 2685, 39477, 43697 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)



Corresponding primes (k!-3)/3 are in A139057.

a(13) > 10000. The PFGW program has been used to certify all the terms up to a(12), using a deterministic test which exploits the factorization of a(n) + 1. - Giovanni Resta, Mar 28 2014

98166 is a member of the sequence but its index is not yet determined. The interval where sieving and tests were not run is [60000,90000]. - Serge Batalov, Feb 24 2015
