Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

A288451 Numbers n such that !n + 7 is prime. 0

COMMENTS

At present the terms >= 2135 are only probable primes.

Expected to be finite, similar to Živković (1999).

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..18.

M. Živković, The number of primes Sum_{i=1..n} (-1)^(n-i)*i! is finite, Math. Comp. 68 (1999), no. 225, 403-409.

EXAMPLE

4 is a term, because 0! + 1! + 2! + 3! + 7 = 17 is prime.

MATHEMATICA

Do[ If[ PrimeQ[ Sum[ k!, {k, 0, n - 1} ] + 7 ], Print[ n ] ], {n, 1, 600} ]

PROG

(PARI) s=0; for(n=0, 600, if(ispseudoprime(s + 7), print1(n, ", ")); s+=n!)
