COMMENTS

If the equation x^2+y^2 = n has got two solutions (x, y), (y, x) then they will be counted only once.

No solutions can exist for the values of k > n.

This sequence differs from A216504, since this sequence gives the total number of solutions to the equation x^2+k*y^2 = n, whereas the sequence A216504 gives the number of distinct values of k for which a solution to the equation x^2+k*y^2 = n can exist.

Some values of k can clearly have more than one solution.

For example, x^2+k*y^2 = 33 is satisfiable for

33 = 1^2+2*4^2.

33 = 5^2+2*2^2.

33 = 3^2+6*2^2.

33 = 1^2+8*2^2.

33 = 5^2+8*1^2.

33 = 4^2+17*1^2.

33 = 3^2+24*1^2.

33 = 2^2+29*1^2.

33 = 1^2+32*1^2.

33 = 0^2+33*1^2.

So for this sequence a(33) = 10.

On the other hand, for A216504, there exist only 7 different values of k for which a solution to the equation mentioned above exists.

So A216504(33) = 8.
