COMMENTS

Conjecture: (i) For any nonnegative integer n not of the form 4^k*(8*m+7) (k,m = 0,1,2,...), we have a(n) > 0.

(ii) Any nonnegative integer not of the form 4^k*(8*m+7) (k,m = 0,1,2,...) can be written as x^2 + y^2 + z^2 with x,y,z integers such that a*x + b*y + c*z is a square or twice a square, whenever (a,b,c) is among the triples (1,2,5), (1,3,4), (1,4,7), (1,6,7), (2,3,4), (2,3,9), (3,4,7), (3,4,9).

The Gauss-Legendre theorem states that a nonnegative integer can be written as the sum of three squares if and only if it is not of the form 4^k*(8*m+7) with k and m nonnegative integers. Thus a(4^k*(8*m+7)) = 0 for all k,m = 0,1,2,..., and part (i) of our conjecture (verified for n up to 1.6*10^6) is stronger than the Gauss-Legendre theorem.

See also A283269 for a similar conjecture.

EXAMPLE

a(82) = 1 since 82 = 0^2 + (-1)^2 + 9^2 with 0 + 2*(-1) + 3*9 = 5^2.

a(328) = 1 since 328 = 0^2 + (-2)^2 + 18^2 with 0 + 2*(-2) + 3*18 = 2*5^2.

a(330) = 1 since 330 = 5^2 + 4^2 + 17^2 with 5 + 2*4 + 3*17 = 8^2.

a(466) = 1 since 466 = 21^2 + 0^2 + 5^2 with 21 + 2*0 + 3*5 = 6^2.

a(1320) = 1 since 1320 = 10^2 + 8^2 + 34^2 with 10 + 2*8 + 3*34 = 2*8^2.

a(1387) = 1 since 1387 = 33^2  + (-17)^2 + 3^2 with 33 + 2*(-17) + 3*3 = 2*2^2.

a(1857) = 1 since 1857 = (-37)^2 + (-2)^2 + 22^2 with (-37) + 2*(-2) + 3*22 = 5^2.

a(1864) = 1 since 1864 = 42^2 + 0^2 + 10^2 with 42 + 2*0 + 3*10 = 2*6^2.

a(2386) = 1 since 2386 = (-44)^2 + 3^2 + 21^2 with (-44) + 2*3 + 3*21 = 5^2.

a(5548) = 1 since 5548 = 66^2 + (-34)^2 + 6^2 with 66 + 2*(-34) + 3*6 = 4^2.

a(7428) = 1 since 7428 = (-74)^2 + (-4)^2 + 44^2 with (-74) + 2*(-4) + 3*44 = 2*5^2.

a(9544) = 1 since 9544 = (-88)^2 + 6^2 + 42^2 with (-88) + 2*6 + 3*42 = 2*5^2.
