A [[wp:Hardy–Ramanujan number|taxicab number]] (the definition that is being used here) is a positive integer that can be expressed as the sum of two positive cubes in more than one way.

The first taxicab number is '''1729''', which is: ::: 13 + 123 and ::: 93 + 103.

Taxicab numbers are also known as: ::* taxi numbers ::* taxi-cab numbers ::* taxi cab numbers ::* Hardy-Ramanujan numbers

• Compute and display the lowest 25 taxicab numbers (in numeric order, and in a human-readable format).
• For each of the taxicab numbers, show the number as well as it's constituent cubes.

;Extra credit

• Show the 2,000th taxicab number, and a half dozen more

## Befunge

This is quite slow in most interpreters, although a decent compiler should allow it to complete in a matter of seconds. Regardless of the speed, though, the range in a standard Befunge-93 implementation is limited to the first 64 numbers in the series, after which the 8-bit memory cells will overflow. That range could be extended in Befunge-98, but realistically you're not likely to wait that long for the results.

## C

Using a priority queue to emit sum of two cubs in order. It's reasonably fast and doesn't use excessive amount of memory (the heap is only at 245 length upon the 2006th taxi).

```#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>

typedef unsigned long long xint;
typedef unsigned uint;
typedef struct {
uint x, y; // x > y always
xint value;

xint *cube;
uint n_cubes;

sum_t *pq;
uint pq_len, pq_cap;

{
uint x = n_cubes++;
cube = realloc(cube, sizeof(xint) * (n_cubes + 1));
cube[n_cubes] = (xint) n_cubes*n_cubes*n_cubes;
if (x < 2) return; // x = 0 or 1 is useless

if (++pq_len >= pq_cap) {
if (!(pq_cap *= 2)) pq_cap = 2;
pq = realloc(pq, sizeof(*pq) * pq_cap);
}

sum_t tmp = (sum_t) { x, 1, cube[x] + 1 };
// upheap
uint i, j;
for (i = pq_len; i >= 1 && pq[j = i>>1].value > tmp.value; i = j)
pq[i] = pq[j];

pq[i] = tmp;
}

void next_sum(void)
{
redo:	while (!pq_len || pq[1].value >= cube[n_cubes]) add_cube();

sum_t tmp = pq[0] = pq[1];	// pq[0] always stores last seen value
if (++tmp.y >= tmp.x) {		// done with this x; throw it away
tmp = pq[pq_len--];
if (!pq_len) goto redo;	// refill empty heap
} else
tmp.value += cube[tmp.y] - cube[tmp.y-1];

uint i, j;
// downheap
for (i = 1; (j = i<<1) <= pq_len; pq[i] = pq[j], i = j) {
if (j < pq_len && pq[j+1].value < pq[j].value) ++j;
if (pq[j].value >= tmp.value) break;
}
pq[i] = tmp;
}

uint next_taxi(sum_t *hist)
{
do next_sum(); while (pq[0].value != pq[1].value);

uint len = 1;
hist[0] = pq[0];
do {
hist[len++] = pq[1];
next_sum();
} while (pq[0].value == pq[1].value);

return len;
}

int main(void)
{
uint i, l;
sum_t x[10];
for (i = 1; i <= 2006; i++) {
l = next_taxi(x);
if (25 < i && i < 2000) continue;
printf("%4u:%10llu", i, x[0].value);
while (l--) printf(" = %4u^3 + %4u^3", x[l].x, x[l].y);
putchar('\n');

return 0;

## EchoLisp

Using the '''heap''' library, and a heap to store the taxicab numbers. For taxi tuples - decomposition in more than two sums - we use the '''group''' function which transforms a list ( 3 5 5 6 8 ...) into ((3) (5 5) (6) ...).

Explanation:

First, generate 100 cubes.

Then, form a 3 column table of unique rows: sum, small cube, large cube

Then, gather rows where the first entry is the same. Keep the ones with at least two such entries (sorted by ascending order of sum).

Then, place an counting index (starting from 1) in front of each row, so the columns are now: '''counting index''', '''sum''', '''small cube''', '''large cube'''.

Note that the cube root of the 25th entry is slightly smaller than 74, so testing against the first 100 cubes is more than sufficient.

Note that here we have elected to show the constituent cubes as themselves rather than as expressions involving their cube roots.

The extra blank box at the end is because when tackling this large of a data set, some sums can be achieved by three different pairs of cubes.

## Pascal

{{works with |Free Pascal}} Brute force: Create all combinations x³+ y³ | y < x one by on and test if there is a combination v < x and v> w > y with the same cube-sum. Combinations to check = n*(n-1)/2.The mean distance of one Combination m is m/2 from m³+1³ to m³+(m-1)³. searchSameSum checks one half of this distance == m/4.So O(n) ~ n³ /8 checks are needed. searchSameSum takes most of the time (>95% ), sorting is neglectable. [[http://rosettacode.org/wiki/Taxicab_numbers#C]]C-Version is ~6 times faster aka 43 vs 247 ms for max = 1290^3.

## Perl

Uses segmentation so memory use is constrained as high values are searched for. Also has parameter to look for Ta(3) and Ta(4) numbers (which is when segmentation is really needed). By default shows the first 25 numbers; with one argument shows that many; with two arguments shows results in the range.

```my(\$beg, \$end) = (@ARGV==0) ? (1,25) : (@ARGV==1) ? (1,shift) : (shift,shift);

my \$lim = 1e14;  # Ought to be dynamic as should segment size
my @basis = map { \$_*\$_*\$_ } (1 .. int(\$lim ** (1.0/3.0) + 1));
my \$paira = 2;  # We're looking for Ta(2) and larger

my (\$segsize, \$low, \$high, \$i) = (500_000_000, 0, 0, 0);

while (\$i < \$end) {
\$low = \$high+1;
die "lim too low" if \$low > \$lim;
\$high = \$low + \$segsize - 1;
\$high = \$lim if \$high > \$lim;
foreach my \$p (_find_pairs_segment(\@basis, \$paira, \$low, \$high,
sub { sprintf("%4d^3 + %4d^3", \$_[0], \$_[1]) })    ) {
\$i++;
next if \$i < \$beg;
last if \$i > \$end;
my \$n = shift @\$p;
printf "%4d: %10d  = %s\n", \$i, \$n, join("  = ", @\$p);
}
}

next if \$sum < \$start;

push @{ \$allpairs{\$sum} }, \$i, \$j;
}
# If we wanted to save more memory, we could filter and delete every entry
# where \$n < 2 * \$p->[\$i+1].  This can cut memory use in half, but is slow.
}

my @retlist;
foreach my \$list (grep { scalar @\$_ >= \$len*2 } values %allpairs) {

## Perl 6

This uses a pretty simple search algorithm that doesn't necessarily return the Taxicab numbers in order. Assuming we want all the Taxicab numbers within some range S to N, we'll search until we find N values. When we find the Nth value, we continue to search up to the cube root of the largest Taxicab number found up to that point. That ensures we will find all of them inside the desired range without needing to search arbitrarily or use magic numbers. Defaults to returning the Taxicab numbers from 1 to 25. Pass in a different start and end value if you want some other range.

```constant @cu = (^Inf).map: { .³ }

sub MAIN (\$start = 1, \$end = 25) {
my %taxi;
my int \$taxis = 0;
my \$terminate = 0;
my int \$max = 0;

for 1 .. * -> \$c1 {
last if ?\$terminate && (\$terminate < \$c1);
for 1 .. \$c1 -> \$c2 {
my \$this = @cu[\$c1] + @cu[\$c2];
%taxi{\$this}.push: [\$c2, \$c1];
if %taxi{\$this}.elems == 2 {
++\$taxis;
\$max max= \$this;
}
\$terminate = ceiling \$max ** (1/3) if \$taxis == \$end and !\$terminate;
}
}

display( %taxi, \$start, \$end );

}

sub display (%this_stuff, \$start, \$end) {
my \$i = \$start;
printf "%4d %10d  =>\t%s\n", \$i++, \$_.key,
(.value.map({ sprintf "%4d³ + %-s\³", |\$_ })).join: ",\t"
for %this_stuff.grep( { \$_.value.elems > 1 } ).sort( +*.key )[\$start-1..\$end-1];
}

Although, for this task it's simply faster to look up the cubes in the sum when we need to print them, because we can now store and sort only the sums:

```cubes, crev = [x**3 for x in range(1,1200)], {}
# for cube root lookup
for x,x3 in enumerate(cubes): crev[x3] = x + 1

sums = sorted(x+y for x in cubes for y in cubes if y < x)

idx = 0
for i in range(1, len(sums)-1):
if sums[i-1] != sums[i] and sums[i] == sums[i+1]:
idx += 1
if idx > 25 and idx < 2000 or idx > 2006: continue

n,p = sums[i],[]
for x in cubes:
if n-x < x: break
if n-x in crev:
p.append((crev[x], crev[n-x]))
print "%4d: %10d"%(idx,n),
for x in p: print " = %4d^3 + %4d^3"%x,
print

### Using heapq module

A priority queue that holds cube sums. When consecutive sums come out with the same value, they are taxis.

```from heapq import heappush, heappop

def cubesum():
h,n = [],1
while True:
while not h or h[0][0] > n**3: # could also pre-calculate cubes
heappush(h, (n**3 + 1, n, 1))
n += 1

(s, x, y) = heappop(h)
yield((s, x, y))
y += 1
if y < x:    # should be y <= x?
heappush(h, (x**3 + y**3, x, y))

def taxis():
out = [(0,0,0)]
for s in cubesum():
if s[0] == out[-1][0]:
out.append(s)
else:
if len(out) > 1: yield(out)
out = [s]

n = 0
for x in taxis():
n += 1
if n >= 2006: break
if n <= 25 or n >= 2000:
print(n, x)

(if (> (cube aprox) x)
(- aprox 1)

(let ()
(define pairs
(for*/list ([j (in-range 1 (add1 (cubic-root (quotient n 2))))]
[k (in-value (cubic-root (- n (cube j))))]
#:when (= n (+ (cube j) (cube k))))
(cons j k)))
(if (>= (length pairs) 2)
(begin
(printf "~a: ~a" p n)

{{trans|Python}} Using a binary heap:

```fcn cubeSum{

## ZX Spectrum Basic

This will, in the strictest sense, work. Don't hold your breath though; after six hours on an emulator at full speed it had generated the first 10 numbers. Getting to 2006 may take a while longer.

You cannot fit the whole 1625-entry table of cubes (and this program on top) into the 16K ZX Spectrum. Replace all 1625s with 1200s to resolve; numerically unjustified as an exhaustive search, but we know this will be sufficient to find the 2006th number. Eventually.

```10 DIM f(1625): REM populating a cube table at the start will be faster than computing the cubes on the fly
20 FOR x=1 TO 1625
30 LET f(x)=x*x*x: REM x*x*x rather than x^3 as the ZX Spectrum's exponentiation function is legendarily slow
40 NEXT x
50 LET c=0
60 FOR x=1 TO 4294967295: REM the highest number the ZX Spectrum Basic can accurately hold internally; floor (cuberoot max)=1625, hence the table limit
70 LET k=0
80 FOR m=1 TO 1625
90 FOR n=m+1 TO 1625
100 IF f(m)+f(n)=x THEN GOTO 160
110 IF f(n)>=x THEN LET n=1625: REM overshot, break out of the loop
120 IF f(m)>=x THEN LET m=1625
130 NEXT n
140 NEXT m
150 NEXT x
160 IF k=1 THEN LET q=m: LET r=n: GO TO 230: REM got one!
170 LET o=m
180 LET p=n
190 LET k=1
200 NEXT n
210 NEXT m
220 NEXT x
230 LET c=c+1
240 IF c>25 AND c<2000 THEN GO TO 330
250 LET t\$="": REM convert number to string; while ZX Spectrum Basic can store all the digits of integers up to 2^32-1...
260 LET t=INT (x/100000): REM ...it will resort to scientific notation trying to display any more than eight digits
270 LET b=x-t*100000
280 IF t=0 THEN GO TO 300: REM omit leading zero
290 LET t\$=STR\$ t
300 LET t\$=t\$+STR\$ b
310 PRINT c;":";t\$;"=";q;"^3+";r;"^3=";o;"^3+";p;"^3"
320 POKE 23692,10: REM suppress "scroll?" prompt when screen fills up at c=22
330 IF c=2006 THEN LET x=4294967295: LET n=1625: LET m=1625
340 NEXT n
350 NEXT m
360 NEXT x
