%N Least prime p with A271518(p) = n.

%C Conjecture: a(n) exists for any positive integer n.

%C In contrast, it is known that for each prime p the number of ordered integral solutions to the equation x^2 + y^2 + z^2 + w^2 = p is 8*(p+1).

%C In 1998 J. Friedlander and H. Iwaniec proved that there are infinitely many primes p of the form w^2 + x^4 = w^2 + (x^2)^2 + 0^2 + 0^2 with w and x nonnegative integers. Since x^2 + 3*0 + 5*0 is a square, we see that A271518(p) > 0 for infinitely many primes p.

%e a(1) = 5 since 5 is the first prime which can be written in a unique way as x^2 + y^2 + z^2 + w^2 with x,y,z,w nonnegative integer and x + 3*y + 5*z a square; in fact, 5 = 1^2 + 0^2 + 0^2 + 2^2 with 1 + 3*0 + 5*0 = 1^2.

%e a(2) = 2 since 2 = 1^2 + 0^2 + 0^2 + 1^2 with 1 + 3*0 + 5*0 = 1^2, and 2 = 1^2 + 1^2 + 0^2 + 0^2 with 1 + 3*1 + 5*0 = 2^2.
