Neil,
btw there's misprint:
n=1..1200
not
n=1..120000
Zak
I'm running (in parallel) Mmca and PARI -
up to n=600 both agree with RM's (and Bob's) data.

%H A037153 Robert G. Wilson v (rgwv at rgwv.com), <a href="a037153.txt"> Table of n, a(n) for n=1..120000</a> a(n) is the least prime such that n! + p
is also prime.
