Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

COMMENTS

This is similar to A232551, except that this includes non-primitive quadratic forms like 2x^2+2xy+4y^2 and 2x^2+4y^2 because the prime 2 can be represented by both of them. But unlike A067752, we do not include quadratic forms like 4x^2+2xy+4y^2 and 4x^2+4xy+4y^2 by which no prime can be represented.

So, when n == 3 (mod 4), this includes the additional non-primitive quadratic form 2x^2+2xy+((n+1)/2)y^2 and when p^2 divides n, where p is prime, this includes the additional non-primitive quadratic form px^2+(n/p)y^2.

If p is a prime and if p^2 does not divide n, then there exist a unique non-primitive quadratic form of discriminant = -4n by which p can be represented if and only if -n is a quadratic residue (mod p) and there exists a multiple of p which can be written in the form x^2+ny^2 in which p appears raised to an odd power, except when p = 2 and n == 3 (mod 8).
