EXAMPLE

a(16) = 3 because there are three integers between 6 and 10.

MAPLE

a:= n-> max(0, ceil((n+sqrt(n))/2)-1-floor((n-sqrt(n))/2)):

seq(a(n), n=0..120);  # Alois P. Heinz, Apr 02 2014

MATHEMATICA

a[n_] := If[IntegerQ[Sqrt[n]], Sum[1, {m, Ceiling[(n - Sqrt[n])/2] + 1, Floor[(n + Sqrt[n])/2] - 1}], Sum[1, {m, Ceiling[(n - Sqrt[n])/2], Floor[(n + Sqrt[n])/2]}]]
