(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A050794 Consider the Diophantine equation x^3+y^3=z^3+1 (1<x<y<z) or 'Fermat near misses'. Arrange solutions by increasing values of z (see A050791). Sequence gives values of x^3+y^3=z^3+1. For corresponding values of x, y, z see A050792, A050793, A050791 respectively. 5
