COMMENTS

Strong conjecture : for n>12, n^2/2<a(n)<n^2. Weak conjecture : a(n)>n for any n. A simple application of the weak conjecture could be to determine if the equation x^3-y^2 = A (A integer) has no solution in integers. For example the equation x^3-y^2 = 5 would have no solution in integers since a(n)>5 for n>5 and from a direct calculus, A070923(k) is different from 5, k = 1^3 to 6^3.

The strong conjecture does not hold for n = 23, 26, 28, 30, 36, 42, 46, 47, 48, 49, ... - Lambert Klasen (Lambert.Klasen(AT)gmx.net), Dec 17 2004
