COMMENTS

Conjecture: (i) Each term is congruent to one of 3, 4, 5, 9 modulo 10.
(ii) a(n+1)  a(n) > 4 for all n > 0.
Part (ii) of this conjecture is stronger than the conjecture in A262956. Note that a(139)  a(138) = 18089  18084 = 5.

EXAMPLE

a(1) = 9 since each of 1..8 can be written as x^4 + y^2 + z*(z+1)/2 with z > 0, but 9 cannot be represented in this way. Clearly, 1 = 0^4 + 0^2 + 1*2/2, 2 = 0^4 + 1^2 + 1*2/2, 3 = 1^4 + 1^2 + 1*2/2, 4 = 0^4 + 1^2 + 2*3/2, 5 = 1^4 + 1^2 + 2*3/2, 6 = 0^4 + 0^2 + 3*4/2, 7 = 0^4 + 1^2 + 3*4/2 and 8 = 1^3 + 1^2 + 3*4/2.
