%N Number of values of k for which n can be written in the form a^2 + k*b^2, a >= 0, b >= 0, k > 0. a(n) = 0 if a(n) is infinite.

%C A number can be written as a^2+b^2 if and only if it has no prime factor congruent to 3 (mod 4) raised to an odd power.

%C A number can be written as a^2+2*b^2 if and only if it has no prime factor congruent to 5 (mod 8) or 7 (mod 8) raised to an odd power.

%C A number can be written as a^2+3*b^2 if and only if it has no prime factor congruent to 2 (mod 3) raised to an odd power.

%C A number can be written as a^2+7*b^2 if and only if it has no prime factor congruent to 3 (mod 7) or 5 (mod 7) or 6 (mod 7) raised to an odd power. Also the power of 2 should not be 1, if it can be written in the form a^2+7*b^2.

%C a(n) = 0 if and only if n is a square. - _Charles R Greathouse IV_, Sep 11 2012
