COMMENTS

Replace the first term with 4, then add 1 to all the others to find numbers where n^3 starts with n+2.  Similar processes can be used for any n+2k. (conjectured) - Dhilan Lahoti, Aug 30 2015

10^k is in the sequence for all k.  For odd k, m = ceil(10^(k/2)) is in the sequence if and only if m^3/(m+1) < 10^k. A necessary condition for this is that m - 1/2 > 10^(k/2), i.e. the first digit after the decimal point in 10^(k/2) is at least 5.  Is this sufficient as well as necessary? - Robert Israel, Aug 31 2015
