COMMENTS

Frequency of n in the sequence A097508. [R. J. Mathar, Sep 19 2010]
Theorem: If the initial term is omitted, this is identical to A276862. For proof, see solution to Problem B6 in the 81st William Lowell Putnam Mathematical Competition (see links). The argument may also imply that A082844 is also the same, apart from two initial terms.  Manjul Bhargava, Kiran Kedlaya, and Lenny Ng, Mar 02 2021. Postscript from the same authors, Sep 09 2021: We have proved that the present sequence, A097509 (indexed from 0) matches the definition of our {c_i}.

FORMULA

a(n) = A006337(n)1.  Robert G. Wilson v, Aug 21 2014
Conjecture: a(n+1) = A082844(n).  Benedict W. J. Irwin, Mar 13 2016
A245219 appears to be another sequence identical to this one.


MAPLE

S:= [seq(floor(n*sqrt(2))n, n=0..1000)]:
seq(numboccur(i, S), i=0..max(S)); # Robert Israel, Mar 13 2016


MATHEMATICA
