%N Expansion of (Sum_{k>=0} x^(k^2*(k+1)^2/4))^12.

%C Number of ways to write n as an ordered sum of 12 squares of triangular numbers (A000537).

%C Every number is the sum of three triangular numbers (Fermat's polygonal number theorem).

%C Conjecture: a(n) > 0 for all n.

%C Extended conjecture: every number is the sum of at most 12 squares of triangular numbers (or partial sums of cubes).

%C Is there a solution, in analogy with Waring's problem (see A002804), for the partial sums of k-th powers?
