EXAMPLE

3$ + 1 = 7 is prime, so 7 is in the sequence. (Here '$' denotes the swinging factorial function.)

MAPLE

# Seq with arguments <= n:

a := proc(n) select(isprime, map(x -> A056040(x)+1, [$1..n]));

select(isprime, map(x -> A056040(x)-1, [$1..n]));

sort(convert(convert(%%, set) union convert(%, set), list)) end:

MATHEMATICA

Reap[Do[f = n!/Quotient[n, 2]!^2; If[PrimeQ[p = f - 1], Sow[p]]; If[PrimeQ[p = f + 1], Sow[p]], {n, 1, 45}]][[2, 1]] // Union (* Jean-Fran├žois Alcover, Jun 28 2013 *)
