COMMENTS

Conjecture: (i) a(n) > 0 for all n > 0. In other words, for each n = 1,2,3,... there are integers x and y such that n(x^4+x^3+y^2) is a positive triangular number.
(ii) a(n) = 1 only for n = 1, 2, 8, 20, 62, 97, 296, 1493, 4283, 4346, 5433.
In contrast, the author conjectured in A262813 that any positive integer can be expressed as the sum of a nonnegative cube, a square and a positive triangular number.

EXAMPLE

a(1) = 1 since 1 = (1)^4 + (1)^3 + 0^2 + 1*2/2.
a(2) = 1 since 2 = (1)^4 + (1)^3 + 1^2 + 1*2/2.
a(8) = 1 since 8 = 1^4 + 1^3 + 0^2 + 3*4/2.
a(20) = 1 since 20 = (2)^4 + (2)^3 + 3^2 + 2*3/2.
a(62) = 1 since 62 = (2)^4 + (2)^3 + 3^2 + 9*10/2.
a(97) = 1 since 97 = 1^4 + 1^3 + 2^2 + 13*14/2.
a(296) = 1 since 296 = (4)^4 + (4)^3 + 7^2 + 10*11/2.
a(1493) = 1 since 1493 = (2)^4 + (2)^3 + 0^2 + 54*55/2.
a(4283) = 1 since 4283 = (6)^4 + (6)^3 + 50^2 + 37*38/2.
a(4346) = 1 since 4346 = (3)^4 + (3)^3 + 49^2 + 61*62/2.
a(5433) = 1 since 5433 = (8)^4 + (8)^3 + 14^2 + 57*58/2.
