COMMENTS

Solutions x to the equations x = a^3 + b^3 = (c+1)^3 - c^3 in positive integers. The values of c are A226902.

The intersection of A003325 and A003215.

Subsequence of A225908 = numbers that are both a sum and a difference of two positive cubes.

Shiraishi's solution to Gokai Ampon's equation u^3 + v^3 + w^3 = n^3 (see A023042 and A226903) shows that the sequence is infinite.

FORMULA

a(n) = (A226902(n)+1)^3 - A226902(n)^3.

EXAMPLE

3^3 + 4^3 = 6^3 - 5^3 = 91, so 91 is a member.
