COMMENTS

If such an m>0 exists, this proves that n is not in A051213, i.e., not of the form 2^x-y^2. On the other hand, if there are integers x, y such that n=2^x-y^2, then we know that a(n)=0.

a(519) > 20000 if it is nonzero.

It remains to show whether "a(n)=0" is equivalent to "n is in A051213". For example, one can show that 519 is not in A051213, but we don't know a(519) yet. - M. F. Hasler, Oct 23 2014
