COMMENTS

The asymptotic density of cubefree integers is the reciprocal of Apery's constant 1/zeta(3) = 0.83190737258... The number of cubefree integers not exceeding N is thus roughly N/zeta(3). When N is a power of 2, this sequence gives the difference between the actual number (A160113) and that linear estimate (rounded to the nearest integer).
