COMMENTS

There are no solutions with (x,y,z) relatively prime. [Bruin]

If x is in this sequence, then so is x*a^4 for any a.

Chai Wah Wu, all terms x in sequence such that x < 5*10^7 and there exists y with x^3+y^3 = z^4 <= 10^24

FORMULA

A parametrized solution: (a (a^m+b^m))^m + (b(a^m+b^m))^m = (a^m+b^m)^(m+1) [From Wikipedia article - set m=3]. - James McLaughlin, Jan 28 2007

EXAMPLE

x=9, y=18, 9^3 + 18^3 = 9^4, so 9 and 18 are on the list.

Other solutions are (2, 2, 2), (9, 18, 9), (28, 84, 28), (32, 32, 16), ...
