COMMENTS
This elliptic curve corresponds to a weight 2 newform which is an eta-quotient, namely, (eta(4t)*eta(8t))^2, see Theorem 2 in Martin & Ono.
It appears that a(n) = prime(n) iff prime(n) == 2 or 3 (mod 4). - Robert Israel, Sep 28 2016 This is true due to the L-function of this elliptic curve. See A278720. - Wolfdieter Lang, Dec 22 2016
The rational solutions of y^2 = x^3 + 4*x are (x,y) = (0,0), (2,4), (2,-4). See the Keith Conrad link, Corollary 3.17., p. 9. - Wolfdieter Lang, Dec 01 2016
For the p-defects p - N(p) see A278720. - Wolfdieter Lang, Dec 22 2016

FORMULA
a(n) is the number of solutions of the congruence y^2 == x^3 + 4*x (mod prime(n)), n >= 1.
a(n) is also the number
of solutions of the congruence y^2 == x^3 - x (mod prime(n)), n >= 1. - Wolfdieter Lang, Dec 22 2016 (See the Cremona link given in A278720).
EXAMPLE
The first nonnegative complete residue system {0, 1, ..., prime(n)-1} is used.
The solutions (x, y) of y^2 == x^3 + 4*x (mod prime(n)) begin:
n, prime(n), a(n)\ solutions (x, y)
1, 2, 2: (0, 0), (1, 1)
2, 3, 3: (0, 0), (2, 1), (2, 2)
3, 5, 7: (0, 0), (1, 0), (2, 1),
(2, 4), (3, 2), (3, 3),
(4, 0)
4, 7, 7: (0, 0), (2, 3), (2, 4),
(3, 2), (3, 5), (6, 3),
(6, 4)
