Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

%C a(1) requires 6 squares, a(2) requires 8, a(3) requires 5 and a(4) through a(70) require 3. - _David Wasserman_, Sep 01 2005

%e The first representations different from those in A089296 are

%e a(6)=31: 13^2 = 169 = 31^2 - 29^2 + 7^2 = -31^2 + 29^2 + 17^2

%e a(10)=23: 29^2 = 841 = 23^2 + 19^2 - 7^2

%e a(11)=29: 31^2 = 961 = 29^2 + 13^2 - 7^2

%Y Cf. A088934 representation of n by distinct squares of primes, A089296 representation of (n-th prime)^2 with maximum term minimized.
