COMMENTS

Any solution for the terms that are currently zero is > 10^14. Since there are so many 'missing' values, I would recommend leaving the more keyword. - Larry Reeves (larryr(AT)acm.org), Jul 02 2002

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..85.

EXAMPLE

a(1) = 8 = 2^3 and 8+1 = 9=3^2; a(3) = 125 = 5^3 and 125 +3 =128 = 2^7.

CROSSREFS

First time a difference of n occurs in A025475 (with its initial 1 deleted).
