COMMENTS

The (n-1) consecutive numbers n!-n, ... , n!-2 (for n > 3) are not prime.

FORMULA

a(n) = A037155(n) - n.

EXAMPLE

a(3)=0 because 3! - 3 - 0 =   3 is prime.

a(4)=1 because 4! - 4 - 1 =  19 is prime and 20 is not.

a(5)=2 because 5! - 5 - 2 = 113 is prime and 114 and 115 are not prime.

MAPLE

f:= proc(n) local r; r:= n!-n;

  r - prevprime(r)

end proc:

f(3):= 0:
