COMMENTS

The next term, if it exists, is at least 2*10^17.  David Wasserman, May 01 2002
a(10) > 10^24, if it exists. The only numbers below 10^24 that can be written as m^k+m in more than one way are 30 = 5^2+5 = 3^3+3 and 130 = 5^3+5 = 2^7+2.  Giovanni Resta, Jun 21 2018
Conjectured to be finite and complete by Bennett (2001).

EXAMPLE

30 is in the sequence since 30 = 2^5  2 = 6^2  6;
2184 is in the sequence since 2184 = 3^7  3 = 13^3  13.
