%N Number of ways of writing n as a sum of 6 squares.

%C The relevant identity for the o.g.f. is theta_3(x)^6 = 1 + 16*Sum_{j>=1} j^2*x^j/(1 + x^(2*j)) - 4*Sum_{j >=0} (-1)^j*(2*j+1)^2 *x^(2*j+1)/(1 - x^(2*j+1)), See the Hardy-Wright reference, p. 315, first equation. - _Wolfdieter Lang_, Dec 08 2016
