COMMENTS

a(n) is the number of solutions of a^2 + b^2 congruent to 1 modulo the nth prime, where 0 <= a <= b <= floor((p1)/2).
Is this sequence nondecreasing? The data for the first thousand terms supports this conjecture.

FORMULA

See the answer given in the link above.
For n>1, a(n) = ceiling(p(n)/8), where p(n) is the nth prime.


EXAMPLE

For n=5: The 5th prime is 11. 1^2 + 3^2 = 10 is congruent to 1 (mod 11) and 4^2 + 4^2 = 32 is congruent to 1 (mod 11).


MAPLE

A242736:=n>ceil(ithprime(n)/8): 0, seq(A242736(n), n=2..100); # Wesley Ivan Hurt, Dec 12 2015
