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.

Conjecture: a(n) > 0 for all n >= 0, and a(n) = 1 only for n = 16^k*m with k = 0,1,2,... and m = 0, 1, 3, 7, 21, 24, 46, 79, 88, 94, 142, 151, 184, 190, 193, 280, 286, 1336.

By the author's 2017 JNT paper, any nonnegative integer can be written as x^2 + y^2 + z^2 + w^2 with x,y,z,w nonnegative integers such that 2*(x-y) (or x) is a square.

See also A281976, A300666, A300667 and A300708 for similar conjectures.

EXAMPLE

a(21) = 1 since 21 = 2^2 + 0^2 + 1^2 + 4^2 with 0 = 0^2 and 2 - 0 = 2*1^2.

a(79) = 1 since 79 = 3^2 + 3^2 + 5^2 + 6^2 with 3*3 = 3^2 and 3 - 3 = 2*0^2.

a(142) = 1 since 142 = 6^2 + 4^2 + 3^2 + 9^2 with 4 = 2^2 and 6 - 4 = 2*1^2.

a(190) = 1 since 190 = 3^2 + 1^2 + 6^2 + 12^2 with 1 = 1^2 and 3 - 1 = 2*1^2.

a(193) = 1 since 193 = 0^2 + 0^2 + 7^2 + 12^2 with 0 = 0^2 and 0 - 0 = 2*0^2.

a(280) = 1 since 280 = 12^2 + 10^2 + 0^2 + 6^2 with 3*12 = 6^2 and 12 - 10 = 2*1^2.

a(1336) = 1 since 1336 = 2^2 + 0^2 + 6^2 + 36^2 with 0 = 0^2 and 2 - 0 = 2*1^2.
