Conjecture: a(n) > 0 for all n = 0,1,2,..., and a(n) = 1 only for n = 0, 16^k*m (k = 0,1,2,... and m = 12, 19, 23, 44, 60, 67, 139, 140, 248, 264, 347, 427, 499, 636, 1388, 1867, 1964, 4843).

By the linked JNT paper, any nonnegative integer can be written as x^2 + y^2 + z^2 + w^2 with x,y,z,w nonnegative integers and z*(z-w) = 0. Whether z = 0 or z = w, the number 9*z^2 + 666*z*w + w^2 is definitely a square.

See also A282561 for a similar conjecture.

EXAMPLE

a(12) = 1 since 12 = 2^2 + 0^2 + 2^2 + 2^2 with 2*2 - 0 = 2^2 and 9*2^2 + 666*2*2 + 2^2 = 52^2.

a(19) = 1 since 19 = 1^2 + 1^2 + 4^2 + 1^2 with 2*1 - 1 = 1^2 and 9*4^2 + 666*4*1 + 1^2 = 53^2.

a(44) = 1 since 44 = 5^2 + 1^2 + 3^2 + 3^2 with 2*5 - 1 = 3^2 and 9*3^2 + 666*3*3 + 3^2 = 78^2.

a(60) = 1 since 60 = 3^2 + 5^2 + 1^2 + 5^2 with 2*3 - 5 = 1^2 and 9*1^2 + 666*1*5 + 5^2 = 58^2.

a(67) = 1 since 67 = 4^2 + 7^2 + 1^2 + 1^2 with 2*4 - 7 = 1^2 and 9*1^2 + 666*1*1 + 1^2 = 26^2.

a(139) = 1 since 139 = 8^2 + 7^2 + 1^2 + 5^2 with 2*8 - 7 = 3^2 and 9*1^2 + 666*1*5 + 5^2 = 58^2.

a(140) = 1 since 140 = 3^2 + 5^2 + 5^2 + 9^2 with 2*3 - 5 = 1^2 and 9*5^2 + 666*5*9 + 9^2 = 174^2.

a(264) = 1 since 264 = 8^2 + 0^2 + 10^2 + 10^2 with 2*8 - 0 = 4^2 and 9*10^2 + 666*10*10 + 10^2 = 260^2.

a(499) = 1 since 499 = 7^2 + 5^2 + 20^2 + 5^2 with 2*7 - 5 = 3^2 and 9*20^2 + 666*20*5 + 5^2 = 265^2.

a(1388) = 1 since 1388 = 15^2 + 21^2 + 19^2 + 19^2 with 2*15 - 21 = 3^2 and 9*19^2 + 666*19*19 + 19^2 = 494^2.

a(1867) = 1 since 1867 = 16^2 + 31^2 + 5^2 + 25^2 with 2*16 - 31 = 1^2 and 9*5^2 + 666*5*25 + 25^2 = 290^2.

a(4843) = 1 since 4843 = 11^2 + 13^2 + 52^2 + 43^2 with 2*11 - 13 = 3^2 and 9*52^2 + 666*52*43 + 43^2 = 1231^2.
