COMMENTS

Conjecture 1: This sequence only has 49 terms as listed.

Conjecture 2: Any integer n > 6471 can be written as Pen(x) + Pen(y) + 3*Pen(z) with x,y,z nonnegative integers. Any integer n > 7727 can be written as Pen(x) + 2*Pen(y) + 2*Pen(z) with x,y,z nonnegative integers. Also, any integer n > 4451 can be written as Pen(x) + 2*Pen(y) + 4*Pen(z) with x,y,z nonnegative integers.

Conjecture 3: Let N(1) = 5928, N(4) = 2761, N(8) = 8868 and N(11) = 9929. For each c among 1, 4, 8, 11, any integer n > N(c) can be written as x*(3x+1)/2 + y*(3y+1) + c*z*(3z+1)/2 with x,y,z nonnegative integers.

Conjecture 4: Any integer n > 5544 can be written as x*(3x+1)/2 + y*(3y+1)/2 + 3z*(3z+1)/2 with x,y,z nonnegative integers. Any integer n > 7093 can be written as x*(3x+1)/2 + 3*y*(3y+1)/2 + 2z*(3z+1) with x,y,z nonnegative integers. Also, any integer n > 8181 can be written as x*(3x+1)/2 + 2y*(3y+1) + 3z*(3z+1) with x,y,z nonnegative integers.

Conjecture 5: For each positive integer m, there are only finitely many positive integers not representable as x*(x+1)/2 + y*(y+1)/2 + z*(z+1)/2 with x,y,z in the set {m, m+1, ...}.

EXAMPLE

a(1) = 9 since the set {Pen(x) + Pen(y) + 2*Pen(z): x,y,z = 0,1,2,...} contains 1..8 but it does not contain 9.

MATHEMATICA

PenQ[n_]:=PenQ[n]=IntegerQ[Sqrt[24n+1]]&&(n==0||Mod[Sqrt[24n+1]+1, 6]==0);

tab={}; Do[Do[If[PenQ[m-x(3x-1)-y(3y-1)/2], Goto[aa]], {x, 0, (Sqrt[12m+1]+1)/6}, {y, 0, (Sqrt[12(m-x(3x-1))+1]+1)/6}]; tab=Append[tab, m]; Label[aa], {m, 1, 5000}]; Print[tab]
