COMMENTS

It is conjectured that all sequence terms are <=5. The terms with a(n)=5 were provided by W. Edwin Clark.

EXAMPLE

The following are representation with the minimal number of terms:

a(0)=4: 0=7^2-11^2-17^2+19^2, a(1)=3: 1=7^2+11^2-13^2, a(4)=1: 4=2^2,

a(5)=2: 5=3^2-2^2, a(6)=5: 6=-(2^2)+3^2+7^2+11^2-13^2.
