COMMENTS

The numbers come in pairs: (6,10), (384, 640) etc. The larger numbers of the pairs can be found in A261328. The sequence has infinite subsequences: Once a pair is in the sequence all its zenzicubic multiples (i.e., by a 6th power) are also in this sequence. Primitive solutions are (6,10), (5687, 8954), (27883, 55566), (64350, 70434), ....

Assumes m, n > 0 as otherwise (k^6, 0) will be a solution. Sequence sorted by increasing order of largest number in pair (A261328). - Chai Wah Wu, Aug 17 2015

EXAMPLE

10^3 - 6^3 = 784 = 28^2, 10^2 - 6^2 = 64 = 4^3.

8954^3 - 5687^3 = 730719^2, 8954^2 - 5687^2 = 363^3.

PROG

(Python)

def cube(z, p):

....iscube=False

....y=int(pow(z, 1/p)+0.01)

....if y**p==z:

........iscube=True

....return iscube

for n in range (1, 10**5):

....for m in range(n+1, 10**5):

........a=(m-n)*(m**2+m*n+n**2)

........b=(m-n)*(m+n)

........if cube(a, 2)==True and cube(b, 3)==True:

............print (n, m)
