The fibonorial n!_F, also called the Fibonacci factorial, is defined as


where F_k is a Fibonacci number. For n=1, 2, ..., the first few fibonorials are 1, 1, 2, 6, 30, 240, 3120, 65520, ... (OEIS A003266).

The fibonorials are asymptotic to


where C is the Fibonacci factorial constant and phi is the golden ratio.

The first few values of n such that n!_F-1 is prime are given by 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 14, 15, ... (OEIS A059709), with no others less than 500.

The first few values of n such that n!_F+1 is prime are given by 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 22, 28, ... (OEIS A053408), with no others less than 500.
