Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

Let b(n) = n-th number of form x^2+y^2+z^2, x,y,z >= 1 (A000408); a(n) = number of solutions (x,y,z) to x^2+y^2+z^2=b(n).

The a(n) are also the degeneracies of the energy levels E(n) in the three dimensional cubic "particle-in-a-box" model in elementary quantum mechanics. - A. Timothy Royappa, Jan 09 2009

EXAMPLE

b(1) = 3 = 1^2+1^2+1^2 (1 way), so a(1) = 1; b(2) = 6 = 2^2+1^2+1^2 (3 ways), so a(2) = 3; etc.
