COMMENTS

Is there a simple expression for a nontrivial lower bound for a(n) ?

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..40.

EXAMPLE

a(5) = 2*5^4 - floor(2^(1/4)*5)^4 = 2*625 - 5^4 = 625.

a(6) = 2*6^4 - floor(2^(1/4)*6)^4 = 2*1296 - 7^4 = 191.

MATHEMATICA

Table[2 n^4 - Floor[2^(1/4) n]^4, {n, 0, 60}] (* Vincenzo Librandi, May 29 2015 *)

PROG

(PARI) f(n, e=4, b=2)=n^e*b-floor(sqrtn(b, e)*n)^e

(MAGMA) [2*n^4 - Floor(2^(1/4)*n)^4: n in [0..50]]; // Vincenzo Librandi, May 29 2015
