 OFFSET 1,5 COMMENTS Conjecture: (i) a(n) > 0 for all n > 0, and a(n) = 1 only for n = 7, 9, 19, 49, 133, 589, 2^k, 2^k*3, 4^k*q (k = 0,1,2,... and q = 14, 67, 71, 199). (ii) If P(y,z) is one of 2y-3z, 2y-8z and 4y-6z, then any natural number can be written as w^2 + x^2 + y^2 + z^2 with w,x,y,z nonnegative integers such that (w-x)^2 + P(y,z)^2 is a square.
