COMMENTS

A078128(a(n))=0.

The sequence is finite because every number greater than 181 can be represented using just 8 and 27. - Franklin T. Adams-Watters, Apr 21 2006

More generally, the numbers which are not the sum of k-th powers larger than 1 are exactly those in [1, 6^k - 3^k - 2^k] but not of the form 2^k*a + 3^k*b + 5^k*c with a,b,c nonnegative. This relies on the following fact applied to m=2^k and n=3^k: if m and n are relatively prime, then the largest number which is not a linear combination of m and n with positive integer coefficients is mn - m - n. - Benoit Jubin, Jun 29 2010

EXAMPLE

181 is not in the list since 181 = 7*2^3 + 5^3.

MATHEMATICA

terms = 83; A078131 = (Exponent[#, x]& /@ List @@ Normal[1/Product[1-x^j^3, {j, 2, Ceiling[(3 terms)^(1/3)]}] + O[x]^(3 terms)])[[2 ;; terms+1]];
