Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

COMMENTS

Numbers that are the sum of three solutions of the Diophantine equation x^3 - y^3 = z^2.

Parametric representation of the solution is (x,y,z) = (8n^2, 7n^2, 13n^3), thus getting a(n) = 8n^2 + 7n^2 + 13n^3 = 15n^2 + 13n^3.

Geometrically, 13^2 = 8^3 - 7^3 means that the square of the hypotenuse of a Pythagorean triangle (5,12,13) is the difference of two cubes, which I recently found on p70 of David Wells' book "The Penguin Dictionary of Curios and Interesting Numbers", Penguin Books, 1997. See also A085479.
