A301891 Number of ways to write 2*n^2 as x^2 + y^2 + z^2 + w^2 with x,y,z,w nonnegative integers such that x + 3*y + 5*z + 15*w is a power of 4. 1

Conjecture 1: a(n) > 0 for all n > 0, and a(n) = 1 only for n = 4^k*m with k = 0,1,2,... and m = 2, 3, 6, 10, 38.

Conjecture 2: For any positive integer n, we can write 2*n^2 as x^2 + y^2 + z^2 + w^2 with x,y,z,w nonnegative integers such that x + 3*y + 5*z + 15*w is twice a power of 4.

EXAMPLE

a(1) = 2 since 2*1^2 = 1^2 + 1^2 + 0^2 + 0^2 with 1 + 3*1 + 5*0 + 15*0 = 4, and 2*1^2 = 1^2 + 0^2 + 0^2 + 1^2 with 1 + 3*0 + 5*0 + 15*1 = 4^2.

a(2) = 1 since 2*2^2 = 0^2 + 2^2 + 2^2 + 0^2 with 0 + 3*2 + 5*2 + 15*0 = 4^2.

a(3) = 1 since 2*3^2 = 1^2 + 1^2 + 0^2 + 4^2 with 1 + 3*1 + 5*0 + 15*4 = 4^3.

a(6) = 1 since 2*6^2 = 0^2 + 8^2 + 2^2 + 2^2 with 0 + 3*8 + 5*2 + 15*2 = 4^3.

a(10) = 1 since 2*10^2 = 10^2 + 8^2 + 6^2 + 0^2 with 10 + 3*8 + 5*6 + 15*0 = 4^3.

a(38) = 1 since 2*38^2 = 34^2 + 34^2 + 24^2 + 0^2 with 34 + 3*34 + 5*24 + 15*0 = 4^4.
