%N Norms of Gaussian primes.

%C This is the range of the norm a^2 + b^2 of Gaussian primes a + b i. A239621 lists for each norm value a(n) one of the Gaussian primes as a, b with a >= b >= 0. In A239397, any of these (a, b) is followed by (b, a), except for a = b = 1. - _Wolfdieter Lang_, Mar 24 2014, edited by _M. F. Hasler_, Mar 09 2018

%C From _Jean-Christophe Hervé_, May 01 2013: (Start)

%C The present sequence is related to the square lattice, and to its division in square sublattices. Let's say that an integer n divides a lattice if there exists a sublattice of index n. Example: 2, 4, 5 divide the square lattice. Then A001481 (norms of Gaussian integers) is the sequence of divisors of the square lattice. Say that n is a "prime divisor" if the index-n sublattice is not contained in any other sublattice except the original lattice itself. The present sequence gives the "prime divisors" of the square lattice.

%C Similarly, A055664 (Norms of Eisenstein-Jacobi primes) is the sequence of "prime divisors" of the hexagonal lattice. (End)

%C The sequence is formed of 2, the prime numbers of form 4k+1, and the square of other primes (of form 4k+3). These are the primitive elements of A001481. With 0 and 1, they are the numbers that are uniquely decomposable in the sum of two squares. - _Jean-Christophe Hervé_, Nov 17 2013

%e There are 8 Gaussian primes of norm 5, +-1+-2i and +-2+-i, but only two inequivalent ones (2+-i). In A239621 2+i is listed as 2, 1.
