COMMENTS

From Michael B. Porter, Oct 16 2009: (Start)

When calculating terms, there is no need to search beyond a value x defined by x^3 - (x-1)^3 = n. The positive solution is given by x = 1/2 + (sqrt(12n-3))/6.

There are no cubes in this sequence, but the numbers before and after a cube are all included. (End)

EXAMPLE

From Michael B. Porter, Oct 16 2009: (Start)

7 is in the sequence because 2^3 + (-1)^3 = 7

8 is not in the sequence because the only solutions to x^3 + y^3 = 8 have either x=0 or y=0. (End)

MATHEMATICA

Reap[For[n = 0, n < 500, n++, fi = FindInstance[x > 0 && y != 0 && n == x^3 + y^3, {x, y}, Integers, 1]; If[fi =!= {}, Print[n, " = ", Hold[x^3 + y^3] /. fi[[1]]]; Sow[n]]]][[2, 1]] (* Jean-Fran├žois Alcover, Nov 05 2016 *)
