COMMENTS

a(n)=0 iff n = m^(6*k).

Values d=x^3-y^2 of extremal points of elliptic Mordell curves. Definition extremal points see A200656. Each value x have only one value of distance d when coordinate x is extremal point, but for many fixed distances d elliptic curve have more than 1 extremal point. - _Artur Jasiński_, Nov 30 2011

Theorem (*Artur Jasinski*): If a(n)>0 then a(n)<(4n^(3/2)-1)/4 for every n. If a(n)<0 then a(n)>(-4n^(3/2)-1)/4 for every n. a(n)=0 then n is perfect square. - _Artur Jasiński_, Dec 08 2011

FORMULA

a(n) = if A077116(n) < A070929(n) then -A077116(n) else A070929(n).

EXAMPLE

A077118(10)=1024=32^2 is the nearest square to 10^3=1000, therefore a(10)=1024-1000=24.
