a(n) is the sum of total number of nonnegative integer solutions to each of a^2 + b^2 = n, a^2 + 2*b^2 = n, a^2 + 3*b^2 = n and a^2 + 7*b^2 = n. (Order matters for the equation a^2+b^2 = n).

COMMENTS

Note: For the equation a^2 + b^2 = n, if there are two solutions (a,b) and (b,a), then they will be counted separately.
The sequences A216501 and A216671 give how many of the four k values, k = 1, 2, 3, 7 does the equation a^2 + k*b^2 = n have a solution to.
1, 2, 3, 7 are the first four numbers with class number 1.
a(n) = A217462(n) when n is not the sum of two positive squares.
But when n is the sum of two positive squares, the ordered pairs for the equation x^2+y^2 = n count.
For example,
193 = 12^2 + 7^2.
193 = 7^2 + 12^2.
193 = 11^2 + 2*6^2.
193 = 1^2 + 3*8^2.
193 = 9^2 + 7*4^2.
So a(193) = 5. On the other hand, for the sequence A217462, the ordered pairs 12^2 + 7^2, 7^2 + 12^2 will be counted only once, so A217462(193) = 4.
