COMMENTS
This sequence was first found by the French mathematician Claude (Séraphin) Moret-Blanc in 1879. See Le Lionnais page 27 for the last term of this sequence: 27. - Bernard Schott, Dec 07 2012
The name "Dudeney numbers" appears in the October 2018 issue of Mathematics Teacher (see link). - N. J. A. Sloane, Oct 10 2018

EXAMPLE
a(3) = 8 because 8^3 = 512 and 5 + 1 + 2 = 8.
a(7) = 27 because 27^3 = 19683 and 1 + 9 + 6 + 8 + 3 = 27.
