Annual Appeal: Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. In 2018 we replaced the server with a faster one, added 20000 new sequences, and reached 7000 citations (often saying "discovered thanks to the OEIS").

Hints
(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A000223 Let A(n) = #{(i,j,k): i^2 + j^2 + k^2 <= n}, V(n) = (4/3)Pi*n^(3/2), P(n) = A(n) - V(n); A000092 gives values of n where |P(n)| sets a new record; sequence gives (nearest integer to, I believe) P(A000092(n)).

COMMENTS

Record values of (absolute values of) A210641 = A117609-A210639. It appears that the records occur always at positive elements of that sequence. (One could add an initial a(0)=1.) - M. F. Hasler, Mar 26 2012

MATHEMATICA

nmax = 3*10^4; P[n_] := Sum[SquaresR[3, k], {k, 0, n}] - Round[(4/3)*Pi* n^(3/2)]; record = 0; A000223 = Reap[For[n = 1, n <= nmax, n++, If[(p = Abs[pn = P[n]]) > record, record = p; Print[pn]; Sow[pn]]]][[2, 1]] (* Jean-François Alcover, Feb 05 2016 *)
