COMMENTS

Sequence gives solutions n to the Diophantine equation A^4 + B^4 + C^4 + D^4 = n^4.

Is this sequence the same as A096739? - David Wasserman, Nov 16 2007

A138760 (numbers n such that n^4 is a sum of 4th powers of four nonzero integers whose sum is n) is a subsequence. - Jonathan Sondow, Apr 06 2008

EXAMPLE

353^4 = 30^4 + 120^4 + 272^4 + 315^4.

651^4 = 240^4 + 340^4 + 430^4 + 599^4.

2487^4 = 435^4 + 710^4 + 1384^4 + 2420^4.

2501^4 = 1130^4 + 1190^4 + 1432^4 + 2365^4.

2829^4 = 850^4 + 1010^4 + 1546^4 + 2745^4.
