%N The number of symmetric positive definite 2 X 2 matrices whose entries are integers of absolute value at most n.

%C A symmetric matrix [[a,c],[c,b]] is positive definite if and only if a > 0 and ab - c^2 > 0. So a(n) is also the number of triples (a,b,c) satisfying these inequalities with a,b,c having absolute value at most n.
