COMMENTS

Let S = {h^6, h >=1} and T = {3*k^6, k >=1}. Then S and T are disjoint, with ordered union given by A249097. The position of n^6 is A249098(n), and the position of 3*n^6 is A249099(n). Also, a(n) is the position of n in the joint ranking of the positive integers and the numbers k*3^(1/6), so that A249098 and A249099 are a pair of Beatty sequences.

FORMULA

Empirical g.f.: x*(x^6+x^5+2*x^4+2*x^3+2*x^2+2*x+1) / ((x1)^2*(x+1)*(x^2x+1)*(x^2+x+1)).  Colin Barker, Oct 22 2014


EXAMPLE

{h^6, h >=1} = {1, 64, 729, 4096, 15625, 46656, 117649, ...};
{3*k^6, k >=1} = {3, 192, 2187, 12288, 46875, 139968, ...};
so the ordered union is {1, 3, 64, 192, 729, 2187, 4096, 12288, ...}, and
a(2) = 3 because 2^6 is in position 3.


MATHEMATICA

z = 200; s = Table[h^6, {h, 1, z}]; t = Table[3*k^6, {k, 1, z}]; u = Union[s, t];
v = Sort[u] (* A249073 *)
m = Min[120, Position[v, 2*z^2]]
Flatten[Table[Flatten[Position[v, s[[n]]]], {n, 1, m}]] (* A249098 *)
Flatten[Table[Flatten[Position[v, t[[n]]]], {n, 1, m}]] (* A249099 *)
