COMMENTS

Numbers of the form 1 + k^3, as {9, 28, 65, 126, 217, 344, 513, 730, 1001, 1332, 1729, ...}, are allowed unless they can also be expressed as p + j^3 for some prime p (thus excluding {344, 513, 1001, 1729, ...}). - Daniel Forgues, Feb 13 2013

Contribution from Daniel Forgues, Feb 15 2013. (Start)

The graph seems to suggest either that (is there a conjecture?):

  * the sequence grows extremely fast (fewer and fewer integers survive),

  * the sequence is finite (at some point, no more integers survive).

If the sequence is not finite, what then is the asymptotic behavior?

Growth pattern (why is there an exponential growth interlude?):

  * up to about n = 2000 the growth is subexponential (from slightly superlinear, progressing towards exponential growth),

  * from about n = 2000 to 5000 the growth is nearly exponential,

  * above n = 5000 the growth becomes superexponential (taking off from exponential growth) (there might be a last finite integer term!). (end)
