Annual Appeal: Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. In 2018 we replaced the server with a faster one, added 20000 new sequences, and reached 7000 citations (often saying "discovered thanks to the OEIS").

COMMENTS

Heath-Brown shows that this sequence is infinite. - Charles R Greathouse IV, Jul 23 2009

The definition implies x, y, z > 0, so the representation (x=0, y=z=1) for the prime 2 or the representation (x=-4, y=-2, z=5) for the prime 53 are not admitted. - R. J. Mathar, Mar 19 2010
