COMMENTS

Solutions x to the equations x = a^3 + b^3 = c^3  d^3 in positive integers.
The intersection of A003325 and A181123. See those sequences for additional comments, references, links and crossrefs.
Suggested by Shiraishi's solutions to Gokai Ampon's equation u^3 + v^3 + w^3 = n^3 (transpose a term from the left side to the right side). See A023042 and A226903.
An infinite subsequence is (A226904(n)+1)^3  A226904(n)^3.

EXAMPLE

3^3 + 4^3 + 5^3 = 6^3, so 3^3 + 4^3 = 91 and 3^3 + 5^3 = 152 and 4^3 + 5^3 = 189 are members.


MATHEMATICA

nn = 3*10^4; t1 = Union[Flatten[Table[x^3 + y^3, {x, nn^(1/3)}, {y, x, (nn  x^3)^(1/3)}]]]; p = 3; t2 = Union[Reap[Do[n = i^p  j^p; If[n <= nn, Sow[n]], {i, Ceiling[(nn/p)^(1/(p  1))]}, {j, i}]][[2, 1]]]; Intersection[t1, t2] (* T. D. Noe, Jun 21 2013 *)
