%N a(n) is the smallest positive integer x such that x^2 - n! is prime.

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

%C For primes x in this sequence see A143933.

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

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

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

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

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