A328538 Second members of a list of seven pairs connected with parity of sums of partition numbers in arithmetic progressions. 1

COMMENTS

The seven pairs are [6,8], [8,12], [12,24], [15,40], [16,48], [20,120], [21,168]. The list is definite, but the conjecture is unproved. The conjecture asserts that

"Sum_{ak+1 square} p(n-k) == 1 mod 2 if and only if bn+1 is a square" holds if and only if [a,b] is one of these seven pairs.

Here p(n) is the number of partitions of n, A000041.
