COMMENTS
Conjecture: Any integer m can be written as x^4 - y^3 + z^2, where x, y and z are nonnegative integers.
I have verified this for all integers m with |m| <= 10^5.
See also A266004 for a related sequence.

EXAMPLE
a(6) = 139 since 6 = 36^4 - 139^3 + 1003^2.
a(67) = 6337 since 67 = 676^4 - 6337^3 + 213662^2.
a(176) = 13449 since 176 = 140^4 - 13449^3 + 1559555^2.
a(2667) = 661^4 - 15655^3 + 1909401^2.
a(11019) = 71383 since 11019 = 4325^4 - 71383^3 + 3719409^2.
