COMMENTS

Indexed by A060464.
Only primitive solutions where gcd(x,y,z) does not divide n are considered.
From the solution A060464(24) = 30 = 283059965^3  2218888517^3 + 2220422932^3 (smallest possible magnitudes according to A. Bogomolny), one has a(24) = 283059965. A solution to A060464(25) = 33 remains to be found. Other values for larger n can be found in the first column of the table on Hisanori Mishima's web page.  M. F. Hasler, Nov 10 2015
In 2019 Brooker found a solution for n = 33 (see A332201 and references there) and later in the same year for n = 42, using the collaborative "Charity Engine". It would be nice to have information on how far it is established that these solutions are the smallest possible.  M. F. Hasler, Feb 24 2020

EXAMPLE

For n = 16 the smallest solution is 16 = (511)^3 + (1609)^3 + 1626^3, which gives the term 511.
42 = 12602123297335631^3 + 80435758145817515^3 + (80538738812075974)^3 was found by Andrew Booker and Andrew Sutherland.
74 = 66229832190556^3 + 283450105697727^3 + (284650292555885)^3 was found by Sander Huisman.
