Cubefree taxicab numbers: the smallest cubefree number that is the sum of 2 cubes in n ways.

1,1


COMMENTS

A necessary condition for the sum to be cubefree is that each pair of cubes be relatively prime.
If the sequence is infinite, then the MordellWeil rank of the elliptic curve of rational solutions to x^3 + y^3 = a(n) tends to infinity with n. In fact, the rank exceeds C*log(n) for some constant C>0 (see Silverman p. 339).  Jonathan Sondow, Oct 22 2013

FORMULA

a(n) >= A011541(n) for n > 0, with equality for n = 1, 2 (only?).  Jonathan Sondow, Oct 25 2013


EXAMPLE

2 = 1^3 + 1^3
1729 = 12^3 + 1^3 = 10^3 + 9^3
15170835645 = 2468^3 + 517^3 = 2456^3 + 709^3 = 2152^3 + 1733^3
1801049058342701083 = 1216500^3 + 92227^3 = 1216102^3 + 136635^3 = 1207602^3 + 341995^3 = 1165884^3 + 600259^3
