COMMENTS

Conjecture: (i) a(n) > 0 for all n = 0,1,2,..., and a(n) = 1 only for n = 0, 3, 11, 15, 23, 43, 67, 79, 155, 211, 331, 347, 403, 427, 659, 899, 1443, 1955, 2^k*m (k = 0,1,2,... and m = 14, 35, 62, 158, 382).

(ii) Each n = 0,1,2,... can be written as x^2 + y^2 + z^2 + w^2 with x*y + z*w/2 a square, where x,y,z are nonnegative integers and w is an integer with 2 | z*w and x <= y >= |w| <= z.

We have verified that a(n) > 0 for all n = 0,...,10^5.
