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

There is a sequence A048763(A000040(n)) = A145446(n) of nearest cubes above the primes and a sequence A048762(A000040(n)) of nearest cubes below the primes.

If the difference A145446(n) - A048762(A000040(n)) is prime, then A000040(n) is in this sequence.

EXAMPLE

The difference of cubes 6^3 - 5^3 = 91 = 7*13 is not prime, so the primes larger than 5^3 = 125 but smaller than 6^3 = 216 are not in the sequence.
