Annual Appeal: Today, Nov 11 2014, is the 4th anniversary of the launch of the new OEIS web site. 70,000 sequences have been added in these four years, all edited by volunteers. Please make a donation (tax deductible in the US) to help keep the OEIS running.

EXAMPLE

62 is the sum of 17 4th powers and no fewer, so 62 is a member.

63 is the sum of 18 4th powers and no fewer, so 63 is a member, although it is not a member of A046048.
