COMMENTS

Conjecture: a(n) > 0 for all n > 0. In other words, any positive integer can be written as the sum of two fifth powers of nonnegative integers one of which is 0 or 1, and two distinct generalized pentagonal numbers.

We have verified a(n) > 0 for all n = 1..2*10^6. The conjecture implies that the set A = {x^5 + pen(y): x = 0,1,2,... and y is an integer} is an additive basis of order two (i.e., the sumset A + A coincides with {0,1,2,...}).

See also A306227 for a similar conjecture.

EXAMPLE

a(11) = 1 with 11 = 1 + 1^5 + pen(-1) + pen(-2).

a(1000) = 1 with 1000 = 0 + 2^5 + pen(8) + pen(-24).

a(5104) = 1 with 5104 = 1 + 3^5 + pen(-3) + pen(57).

a(8196) = 1 with 8196 = 0 + 2^5 + pen(48) + pen(-56).

a(9537) = 1 with 9537 = 1 + 6^5 + pen(17) + pen(30).

a(15049) = 1 with 15049 = 0 + 6^5 + pen(-44) + pen(54).

a(16775) = 1 with 16775 = 1 + 5^5 + pen(-17) + pen(94).
