COMMENTS

For the smallest positive prime numbers of the form x^2 - n! see A143932.

For primes x in this sequence see A143933.

EXAMPLE

a(1)=2 because 2^2-1! = 3 is prime;

a(2)=2 because 2^2-2! = 2 is prime;

a(3)=3 because 3^2-3! = 3 is prime;

a(4)=11 because 11^2-4! = 97 is prime.

MATHEMATICA

a = {}; Do[k = Round[Sqrt[n! ]] + 1; While[ ! PrimeQ[k^2 - n! ], k++ ]; AppendTo[a, k], {n, 1, 50}]; a
