COMMENTS

Conjecture: Any integer m can be written as x^4 - y^3 + z^2, where x, y and z are positive integers.

This is slightly stronger than the conjecture in A266003.

See also A266153 for a related sequence, and A266212 for a stronger conjecture.

If n is a positive square, then a(n) = 1. - Altug Alkan, Dec 23 2015

EXAMPLE

a(0) = 8 since 0 = 4^4 - 8^3 + 16^2.

a(6) = 139 since 6 = 36^4 - 139^3 + 1003^2.

a(15) = 1411 since 15 = 119^4 - 1411^3 + 51075^2.

a(11019) = 71383 since 11019 = 4325^4 - 71383^3 + 3719409^2.
