 A361197 a(n) is the number of equations in the set {x^2 + 2y^2 = n, 2x^2 + 3y^2 = n, ..., k*x^2 + (k+1)*y^2 = n, ..., n*x^2 + (n+1)*y^2 = n} which admit at least one nonnegative integer solution. 0

 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS Compared to the "linear" case given by A356770, the "quadratic" case given by this sequence has a more chaotic behavior. a(n) >= 2 for all n > 1 since (n-1)*x^2 + n*y^2 = n and n*x^2 + (n+1)*y^2 = n always admit one integer solution (respectively (0,1) and (1,0)). Conjecture: a(n) = 2 for infinitely many n. LINKS Table of n, a(n) for n=1..96. EXAMPLE a(5) = 3. Consider the equations: x^2 + 2y^2 = 5, 2x^2 + 3y^2 = 5, 3x^2 + 4y^2 = 5, 4x^2 + 5y^2 = 5, 5x^2 + 6y^2 = 5. Only three of them admit at least one nonnegative integer solution, since 3x^2 + 4y^2 = 5 and x^2 + 2y^2 = 5 have no nonnegative integer solutions. MATHEMATICA b[m_] := m; f[n_] := Table[Dimensions[Solve[b[k]*x^2 + b[k + 1]*y^2 == n, {x, y}, NonNegativeIntegers]][[1]], {k, 1, n}]; CROSSREFS Cf. A356770.
