COMMENTS

Comments from Artur Jasinski, Oct 03 2007 (Start): Some numbers have multiple partitions:

  8 = 4^2 - 8^3 = 312^2 - 46^3

  9 = 6^2 - 3^3 = 15^2 - 6 ^3 = 253^2 - 40^3 (End)

This is Mordell's equation with the condition that x and y are positive. Sequence A054504 lists the n for which there is no solution to Mordell's equation. Hence, none of those numbers will be in this sequence. The terms of this sequence can be determined by looking at the link to Gebel's data. - T. D. Noe, Mar 23 2011

8 is in the sequence since 3^2 = 1^3 + 8.
