COMMENTS

Conjecture: (i) a(n) > 0 for all n > 0, and a(n) = 1 only for n = 16^k*m (k = 0,1,2,... and m = 1, 23, 28, 79, 119, 191, 223, 263, 463, 703, 860, 1052).

(ii) Any positive integer n can be written as x^2 + y^2 + z^2 + w^2 with x and (35*x)^2 + (12*y-24*z)^2 both squares, where x,y,z are nonnegative integers and w is a positive integer.

The author has proved that any nonnegative integer can be written as the sum of a fourth power and three squares.

EXAMPLE

a(1) = 1 since 1 = 0^2 + 0^2 + 0^2 + 1^2 with 0 = 0^2 and (12*0)^2 + (5*0-10*0)^2 = 0^2.

a(23) = 1 since 23 = 1^2 + 3^2 + 2^2 + 3^2 with 1 = 1^2 and (12*1)^2 + (5*3-10*2)^2 = 13^2.

a(28) = 1 since 28 = 1^2 + 1^2 + 1^2 + 5^2 with 1 = 1^2 and (12*1)^2 + (5*1-10*1)^2 = 13^2.

a(79) = 1 since 79 = 1^2 + 5^2 + 2^2 + 7^2 with 1 = 1^2 and (12*1)^2 + (5*5-10*2)^2 = 13^2.

a(119) = 1 since 119 = 1^2 + 9^2 + 1^2 + 6^2 with 1 = 1^2 and (12*1)^2 + (5*9-10*1)^2 = 37^2.

a(191) = 1 since 191 = 9^2 + 5^2 + 7^2 + 6^2 with 9 = 3^2 and (12*9)^2 + (5*5-10*7)^2 = 117^2.

a(223) = 1 since 223 = 1^2 + 13^2 + 7^2 + 2^2 with 1 = 1^2 and (12*1)^2 + (5*13-10*7)^2 = 13^2.

a(263) = 1 since 263 = 9^2 + 13^2 + 2^2 + 3^2 with 9 = 3^2 and (12*9)^2 + (5*13-10*2)^2 = 117^2.

a(463) = 1 since 463 = 1^2 + 19^2 + 10^2 + 1^2 with 1 = 1^2 and (12*1)^2 + (5*19-10*10)^2 = 13^2.

a(703) = 1 since 703 = 1^2 + 13^2 + 7^2 + 22^2 with 1 = 1^2 and (12*1)^2 + (5*13-10*7)^2 = 13^2.

a(860) = 1 since 860 = 4^2 + 18^2 + 18^2 + 14^2 with 4 = 2^2 and (12*4)^2 + (5*18-10*18)^2 = 102^2.

a(1052) = 1 since 1052 = 4^2 + 30^2 + 6^2 + 10^2 with 4 = 2^2 and (12*4)^2 + (5*30-10*6)^2 = 102^2.
