COMMENTS

Let S = {h^6, h >= 1} and T = {32*k^6, k >= 1}.  Then S and T are disjoint.  The position of n^6 in the ordered union of S and T is A249117(n), and the position of 32*n^6 is A249118(n).  Equivalently, the latter two give the positions of n*2^(2/3) and n*2^(3/2), respectively, when all the numbers h*2^(2/3) and k*2^(3/2) are jointly ranked.

EXAMPLE

{h^6, h >= 1} = {1, 64, 729, 4096, 15625, 46656, 117649, ...};

{32*k^6, k >= 1} = {32, 2048, 23328, 131072, 500000, ...};

so the ordered union is {1, 32, 64, 729, 2048, 4096, 15625, ...}, and a(2) = 3

because 2^6 is in position 3 of the ordered union.

MAPLE

Res:= NULL: count:= 0:

a:= 1: b:= 1:

for pos from 1 while count < 100 do

  if a^6 < 32*b^6 then

    Res:= Res, pos;

    count:= count+1;

    a:= a+1

  else

    b:= b+1

  fi
