COMMENTS

The centered cube number a(n)^3 + (a(n) + 1)^3 is equal to at least one other sum of two cubes: a(n)^3 + (a(n) + 1)^3 = b(n)^3 + c(n)^3 = d(n), with b(n) > a(n) and b(n) > |c(n)|, and where b(n)=A352135(n), c(n)=A352136(n) and d(n)=A352133(n).

A number k is a term iff t = k^3 + (k+1)^3 = (2*k + 1)*(k^2 + k + 1) has one or more divisors s < 2*k such that 12*t/s - 3*s^2 is a square. Each such divisor s is the sum of two integers (other than k and k+1) whose cubes sum to t. - Jon E. Schoenfield, Mar 09 2022

FORMULA

a(n)^3 + (a(n) + 1)^3 = A352135(n)^3 + A352136(n)^3 = A352133(n).

EXAMPLE

3 belongs to the sequence as 3^3 + 4^3 = 6^3 + (-5)^3 = 91.

From Jon E. Schoenfield, Mar 11 2022: (Start)

The table below lists the first 15 pairs of integers (b,c) such that b > c+1 and b^3 + c^3 is a centered cube number k^3 + (k+1)^3 = d.

Note that there are two pairs (b,c) for k=121 and two for k=163. For these and for all numbers k for which there is more than one pair (b,c), the pair with the smallest value of b is chosen as the one whose values (b,c) appear in A352135 and A352136, i.e., A352135(n) and A352136(n) are the values (b,c) in that pair whose value of b is smallest.

Thus, the 15 solutions listed in the table account for only the first 13 terms of this sequence and of A352133, A352135, and A352136.
