COMMENTS

For n > 3 we have a(n) < n^2/4; for n > 44 we have a(n) > n^2/5. - Stefan Steinerberger, Apr 17 2006

This sequence contains infinitely many squares. - Philippe Deléham, Apr 03 2009

This is to floor as A033638 is to round. - Jonathan Vos Post, Oct 08 2011

The squares in this sequence are precisely the powers of 4. - Franklin T. Adams-Watters, Jan 06 2014
