It appears that all pairs of close powers involve a cube. For three pairs, the other power is a 7th power. For all remaining pairs, the other power is a 5th power. If this is true, then three powers are never close.

For the first 360 terms, 176 pairs are a cube and a 5th power. The remaining four pairs are a cube and a 7th power. - Donovan Johnson, Feb 26 2011

27 and 32 are close because they are between 25 and 36.


nMax=10^14; lst={}; log2Max=Ceiling[Log[2, nMax]]; bases=Table[2, {log2Max}]; powers=bases^Range[log2Max]; powers[[1]]=Infinity; currPP=1; cnt=0; While[nextPP=Min[powers]; nextPP <= nMax, pos=Flatten[Position[powers, nextPP]]; If[MemberQ[pos, 2], cnt=0, cnt++ ]; If[cnt>1, AppendTo[lst, {currPP, nextPP}]]; Do[k=pos[[i]]; bases[[k]]++; powers[[k]]=bases[[k]]^k, {i, Length[pos]}]; currPP=nextPP]; Flatten[lst]
