 OFFSET 0,1 COMMENTS Ramanujan's notes define this by the same G.f. as A051029 (the b-series) but using Laurent series expansion. It is mislabeled as "beta" in Ramanujan's notes. These give identities of the form alpha(n)^3 + beta(n)^3 = gamma(n)^3 + (-1)^n, where alpha(n)=A272853(n), beta(n)=A272854(n) and gamma(n)=A272855(n). They are from page 82 of the "lost notebook" of Ramanujan. A051028,A051029,A051030 give his examples (135, 138, 172) and (11161, 11468, 14258) while A272853,A272854,A272855 give the examples (9, 10, 12), (791, 812, 1010), and (65601, 67402, 83802).

A272853(n)^3 + A272854(n)^3 = A272855(n)^3 + (-1)^n. EXAMPLE a(3)=6954572 because 5444135^3 + 5593538^3 = 6954572^3 - 1.
