COMMENTS

Also 4 times Kronecker's function F(n).
F(n) is the number of odd classes of binary quadratic forms ax^2+2bxy+cy^2 of discriminant b^2ac = n, where classes of the shape a(x^2+y^2) are counted as 1/2 and "odd" means that at least one of a and c is odd.

FORMULA

G.f. for F(n): Sum_{n >= 1} F(n) q^n = (q^(1/4) / Sum_{ m=infinity, infinity } q^( (2*m+1)^2/4 )) * Sum{ n=infinity, infinity } q^(n^2+n1)/(1q^(2*n1))^2.


MAPLE

t10:=add( q^( (2*m+1)^2/4 ), m=20..20); t1:=series(q^(1/4)/t10, q, 100); t2:=add( q^(n^2+n1)/(1q^(2*n1))^2, n=1..100): series(4*t1*t2, q, 100);
