 OFFSET 2,3 COMMENTS Sequence A063987 lists the quadratic residues (mod p) for each prime p. When p=1 (mod 4), there are an equal number of quadratic residues less than p/2 and greater than p/2. When p=3 (mod 4), there are always more quadratic residues less than p/2 than greater than p/2. LINKS R. J. Mathar, Table of n, a(n) for n = 2..3132 MathOverflow, Most squares in the first half-interval EXAMPLE The quadratic residues of 19, the 8th prime, are 1, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, 11, 16, 17. Six of these are less than 19/2. Hence a(8)=6.
