Number of times Sum_{i=1..u} J(i,2n+1) obtains value zero when u ranges from 1 to (2n+1). Here J(i,k) is the Jacobi symbol.

COMMENTS

A046092 gives the positions of zeros, as only with odd squares A016754(m) = A005408(A046092(m)) Jacobi symbols J(i,n) never obtain value 1, and thus their partial sum never descends back to zero. Even positions contain only even values, while odd positions contain odd values in all other positions, except even values in the positions given by A005408(A165602(i)), for i>=0.
Four bold conjectures by Antti Karttunen, Oct 08 2009: 1) All odd natural numbers occur. 2) Each of them occurs infinitely many times. 3) All even natural numbers occur. 4) Each even number > 0 occurs only finitely many times. (The last can be disputed. For example, 6 occurs four times among the first 400001 terms, at the positions 10, 28, 360, 215832.)
