Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

FORMULA

a(n) = A000230(n!/2) for n > 1. - Charles R Greathouse IV, Jun 30 2011

EXAMPLE

a(4) = 1669 because the next prime after 1669 is 1693 and 1693 - 1669 = 24 = 4!

MATHEMATICA
