COMMENTS

Numbers n such that A100073(n) >= 2; see there for more information and formulas.

In sequence A058957 the smaller square is allowed to be zero, therefore it lists all squares > 4 (m^2 - 0^2 = ((m^2+1)/2)^2 - ((m^2-1)/2)^2 if odd, = (m^2/4+1)^2 - (m^2/4-1)^2 if even) in addition to the terms given here, which already comprise squares (64, 144, ...) having more representations than these "trivial" ones. - M. F. Hasler, Jul 11 2018
