COMMENTS

Conjecture: (i) a(n) > 0 except for n = 3, 10, and a(n) = 1 only for n = 0, 2, 7, 8, 9, 12, 14, 15, 22, 23, 24, 25, 36, 39, 44, 45, 60, 87, 98, 106, 110, 111, 183.

(ii) Any natural number can be written as x^2 + y^2 + z^2 + 2*w^2 with x,y,z,w nonnegative integers such that x + 2*y + 3*z - 3*w is a square.

(iii) For each triple (a,b,c) = (1,2,1), (1,2,3), (1,3,1), (2,4,1), (2,4,2), (2,4,3), (2,4,4), (2,4,8), (8,9,5), any natural number can be written as x^2 + y^2 + z^2 + 2*w^2 with x,y,z,w nonnegative integers such that a*x + b*y - c*z is a square.

(iv) Any natural number can be written as x^2 + y^2 + z^2 + 2*w^2 with x,y,z,w nonnegative integers such that x + 2*y - 2*z is twice a nonnegative cube. Also, each natural number can be written as x^2 + y^2 + z^2 + 2*w^3 with x,y,z,w nonnegative integers such that x + 3*y - z is a square.

See also A275344 and A275301 for related conjectures. We are able to show that each natural number can be written as x^2 + y^2 + z^2 + 2*w^2 with x,y,z,w integers such that x + y + z = t^2 for some t = 0, 1, 2.
