COMMENTS

Conjecture:  For any integer m, there are positive integers x, y and z such that m + x^2 = y^3 + z^3.

This is similar to the conjecture in A266152. We have verified it for all integers m with |m| <= 25000.

Obviously, a(k^3) = 1 for any positive integer k.

See also A266231 for a related sequence.

EXAMPLE

a(0) = 3 since 0 + 3^2 = 1^3 + 2^3.

a(2) = 3703 since 2 + 3703^2 = 107^3 + 232^3.

a(3) = 5 since 3 + 5^2 = 1^3 + 3^3.

a(4) = 43 since 4 + 43^2 = 5^3 + 12^3.

a(37) = 2373 since 37 + 2373^2 = 93^3 + 169^3.

a(1227) = 132316 since 1227 + 132316^2 = 1874^3 + 2219^3.
