COMMENTS
Number of ways to arrange n identical objects in a rectangle, modulo rotation.
Number of unordered solutions of x*y = n. - Colin Mallows, Jan 26 2002
Number of ways to write n-1 as n-1 = x*y + x + y, 0 <= x <= y <= n. - Benoit Cloitre, Jun 23 2002
Also number of values for x where x+2n and x-2n are both squares (e.g., if n=9, then 18+18 and 18-18 are both squares, as are 82+18 and 82-18 so a(9)=2); this is because a(n) is the number of solutions to n=k(k+r) in which case if x=r^2+2n then x+2n=(r+2k)^2 and x-2n=r^2 (cf. A061408). - Henry Bottomley, May 03 2001
Also number of sums of sequences of consecutive odd numbers or consecutive even numbers including sequences of length 1 (e.g., 12 = 5+7 or 2+4+6 or 12 so a(12)=3). - Naohiro Nomoto, Feb 26 2002
Number of partitions whose consecutive parts differ by exactly two.
a(n) depends only on prime signature of n (cf. A025487). So a(24) = a(375) since 24=2^3*3 and 375=3*5^3 both have prime signature (3,1). - Christian G. Bower, Jun 06 2005
Also number of partitions of n such that if k is the largest part, then each of the parts 1,2,...,k-1 occurs exactly twice. Example: a(12)=3 because we have [3,3,2,2,1,1],[2,2,2,2,2,1,1] and [1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1]. - Emeric Deutsch, Mar 07 2006
a(n) is also the number of nonnegative integer solutions of the Diophantine equation 4*x^2 - y^2 = 16*n. For example, a(24)=4 because there are 4 solutions: (x,y) = (10,4), (11,10), (14,20), (25,46). - N-E. Fahssi, Feb 27 2008
a(n) is the number of even divisors of 2*n that are <= sqrt(2*n). - Joerg Arndt, Mar 04 2010
First differences of A094820. - John W. Layman, Feb 21 2012
a(n) = #{k: A027750(n,k) <= A000196(n)}; a(A008578(n)) = 1; a(A002808(n)) > 1. - Reinhard Zumkeller, Dec 26 2012
Row lengths of the tables in A161906 and A161908. - Reinhard Zumkeller, Mar 08 2013
Number of positive integers in the sequence defined by x_0 = n, x_(k+1) = (k+1)*(x_k-2)/(k+2) or equivalently by x_k = n/(k+1) - k. - Luc Rousseau, Mar 03 2018
Expanding the first comment: Number of rectangles with area n and integer side lengths, modulo rotation. Also number of 2D grids of n congruent squares, in a rectangle, modulo rotation (cf. A000005 for rectangles instead of squares; cf. A034836 for the 3D case). - Manfred Boergens, Jun 08 2021
Number of divisors of n that have an even number of prime divisors (counted with multiplicity), or in other words, number of terms of A028260 that divide n. - Antti Karttunen, Apr 17 2022

FORMULA
a(n) = ceiling(d(n)/2), where d(n) = number of divisors of n (A000005).
a(2k) = A034178(2k) + A001227(k). a(2k+1) = A034178(2k+1). - Naohiro Nomoto, Feb 26 2002

Dirichlet g.f.: (zeta(s)^2 + zeta(2*s))/2. - Christian G. Bower, Jun 06 2005 [corrected by Vaclav Kotesovec, Aug 19 2019]
a(n) = (A000005(n) + A010052(n))/2. - Omar E. Pol, Jun 23 2009
a(n) = A034178(4*n). - Michael Somos, May 11 2011
2*a(n) = A161841(n). - R. J. Mathar, Mar 07 2021
a(n) = A000005(n) - A056924(n) = A056924(n) + A010052(n) = Sum_{d|n} A065043(d). - Antti Karttunen, Apr 17 2022
Sum_{k=1..n} a(k) ~ n*log(n)/2 + (gamma - 1/2)*n, where gamma is Euler's constant (A001620). - Amiram Eldar, Nov 27 2022
EXAMPLE
a(4) = 2 since 4 = 2 * 2 = 4 * 1. Also A034178(4*4) = 2 since 16 = 4^2 - 0^2 = 5^2 - 3^2. - Michael Somos, May 11 2011
