COMMENTS

Up to 417 = 13*(2^5) + 1 this sequence is identical to x+2 for x in A003357 Sum of 12 positive 5th powers. Primes in this sequence (107, 293, 349, 653, ...) are A123300. As proved by J.-R. Chen in 1964, g(5) = 37, so every positive integer can be written as the sum of no more than 37 positive 5th powers. G(5) <= 17, bounding the least integer G(5) such that every positive integer beyond a certain point (i.e., all but a finite number) is the sum of G(5) 5th powers.

FORMULA

Sumset {A000584 + A000584 + A000584 + A000584 + A000584 + A000584 + A000584 + A000584 + A000584 + A000584 + A000584 + A000584 + A000584 + A000584}.

EXAMPLE

a(1) = 14 = 1^5 + 1^5 + 1^5 + 1^5 + 1^5 + 1^5 + 1^5 + 1^5 + 1^5 + 1^5 + 1^5 + 1^5 + 1^5 + 1^5.

a(2) = 45 = 1^5 + 1^5 + 1^5 + 1^5 + 1^5 + 1^5 + 1^5 + 1^5 + 1^5 + 1^5 + 1^5 + 1^5 + 1^5 + 2^5.

a(9) = 256 = 1^5 + 1^5 + 1^5 + 1^5 + 1^5 + 1^5 + 1^5 + 1^5 + 1^5 + 1^5 + 1^5 + 1^5 + 1^5 + 3^5.

a(11) = 287 = 1^5 + 1^5 + 1^5 + 1^5 + 1^5 + 1^5 + 1^5 + 1^5 + 1^5 + 1^5 + 1^5 + 1^5 + 2^5 + 3^5
