Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

COMMENTS

Related to primitive congruent numbers A006991.

Assuming the Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer conjecture, the odd number 2n-1 is a congruent number if it is squarefree and 2 a(n) = A072068(n).

Ramanujan theta functions: f(q) (see A121373), phi(q) (A000122), psi(q) (A010054), chi(q) (A000700).

FORMULA

Expansion of 2 * x * phi(x) * psi(x^4) * phi(x^16) in powers of x where phi(), psi() are Ramanujan theta functions. - Michael Somos, Jun 08 2012

EXAMPLE

a(2) = 4 because (1,1,0), (-1,1,0), (1,-1,0) and (-1,-1,0) are solutions when m=3.

2*q + 4*q^3 + 6*q^9 + 4*q^11 + 4*q^17 + 4*q^19 + 2*q^25 + 8*q^27 + 12*q^33
