# Positive Numbers represented by aBinary Quadratic Form

Aim of this post is to implement the methods for calculating the numbers represented by a binary quadratic form in a uniform and efficient way in Sage and hiding the complexity of the situation by providing a simple interface to the user. This blog post was inspired by the Wiki page created by N. J. A. Sloane, see: Binary Quadratic Forms and OEIS

## Definitions

A binary quadratic form over Z is a quadratic homogeneous polynomial in two variables with integer coefficients, q(x, y) = ax^2 + bxy + cy^2. It is conveniently given by a list or tuple of 3 entries: (a, b, c).

A quadratic form q(x, y) represents an integer n if there exist integers x and y with q(x, y) = n. We say that q primitively represents n if there exist relatively prime integers x and y such that q(x, y) = n.

Positive definite forms are definite forms with a > 0. They can only represent positive numbers. Negative definite forms are definite forms with a < 0. They can represent only negative numbers. Indefinite forms can represent both positive and negative numbers.

The discriminant of a nondegenerate binary quadratic form is b^2 - 4ac. Inequivalent forms may have the same discriminant. Quadratic forms with different discriminants cannot be equivalent.

## Geometric view

The graphic shows the level set of the binary quadratic form x^2+x*y+y^2 and the lattice points of the level set 13. The integral values (x, y) = (3, 1), (1, 3), (-1, 4), (-3, 4), (-4, 3), (-4, 1), (-3, -1), (-1, -3), (1, -4), (3, -4), (4, -3) and (4, -1) are points of the ellipse. Therefore 13 is represented by the form.

14 is not represented by the binary quadratic form x^2+x*y+y^2, no lattice points of the level set lie on the ellipse.

## Some examples at a glance

The table below collocates a few sequences in the OEIS which list numbers represented by binary quadratic forms. If an entry in the table below shows multiple sequences this means that the sequences differ only by some initial terms or the equivalence of their definitions is not proved.

 (a, b, c) b^2-4ac prime primitively positive (1, 0, -3) 12 A068228, A141122 A243655 A084916 (1, 1, -2) 9 A002476, A007645 A244713 A056991, A242660 (1, 0, -2) 8 A001132, A038873 A057126 A035251 (1, 1, -1) 5 A038872, A141158 A089270 A031363 (1, 0, -1) 4 A065091 A047486 A042965 (1, 1, 0) 1 A000040, A006005 A000027, A001477 A000027, A001477 (1, 1, 1) -3 A002476, A007645 A034017 A003136, A035238, A144919, A144921 (1, 0 ,1) -4 A002144, A002313 A008784 A001481 (1, 1, 2) -7 A033207, A045373 A244779 A028951, A035248 (1, 0 , 2) -8 A033200, A033203 A057127 A002479 (1, 1, 3) -11 A056874 A244780 A028954, A035247 (1, 0, 3) -12 A002476, A007645 A244819 A003136

The oldest sequences in the table (defined here by the lowest A-number) are (apart from the natural numbers and the prime numbers) A001132 (primes ≡ ± 1 mod 8) and A001481 (numbers that are the sum of 2 squares), which nicely sets the arithmetic theme.

Note that only numbers n ≡ 0 (mod 4) or n ≡ 1 (mod 4) can be a discriminant (..., -8, -7, -4, -3, 0, 1, 4, 5, 8, ...).

Also note that reading a row in the table from the left to the right we have the inclusion "represented primes" ⊆ "primitively represented" ⊆ "represented positives". For example in the case of discriminant 4 the inclusion is A065091A047486A042965 where '⊆' is to be read as 'is subsequence of'.

Prime numbers which are represented by a binary quadratic form are primitively represented by this form. N. J. A. Sloane gave the following short proof on the seq-fan list:

"For if ax^2+bxy+cy^2 = p and gcd(x, y) = d > 1, then d divides p, so d = p. Then let x = pX, y = pY, so ap^2X^2+bp^2XY+cp^2Y^2 = p, so p^2 divides p, a contradiction."

## A Sage based Python class: 'binaryQF(a, b, c)'

### Algorithms

We consider 9 cases in dependence of the determinant D = b^2 - 4ac and required restrictions on the generated integers: prime, primitively represented or all positive values. The table below shows the algorithms used.

• sfb: Extension of Sloane's 'fb' function.
• qfb: Pari's qfbsolve function.
• qfs: A search function based on a hint by R. Israel.
• qfr: Pari's qfrep function.
• jcp: Port of Will Jagy's C++ programs 'ConwayPositivePrimitive' and
'ConwayPositiveAll'.
 D = b^2 - 4ac, D != 0 prime primitively positive D = k^2, k != 0 (square) sfb sfb sfb D < 0 (definite, imaginary) qfb qfs qfr D > 0 (indefinite, real) jcp jcp jcp

### The main function

The aim of this implementation is to bundle all the different algorithms and resources in a Sage class and provide it uniformly to the user through a single function.

```   represented_positives(
N,        # list represented numbers in the range (1..N)
subset,   # {'all', 'primitively', 'prime'}, default 'all'
verbose   # print info, default true
)
```

The function is implemented as a member of the class 'binaryQF'. All other functions in the class are supporting functions for this main function.

A typical use case is:

```    Q = binaryQF([5, 4, 2])
Q.represented_positives(100, 'prime')
```

This will output:

```    Original form  [5, 4, 2] with discriminant -24
Reduced form   [2, 0, 3]
There are 8 primes represented up to 100
[2, 3, 5, 11, 29, 53, 59, 83]
```

One can feed this output into Sage's oeis function

```    oeis([2, 3, 5, 11, 29, 53, 59, 83], max_results = 4)
```

which returns

```    0: A084865: Primes of the form 2x^2 + 3y^2.
```

Below we will additionally introduce a function 'lookup_OEIS' which can be used in connection with a local installation of the database.

### Implementation

Note: The implementation below was written in 2014 with Python 2. An updated version using Python 3.10 can be found on GitHub.

## Utility functions

• OEIS_ID(list, n)
Tries to find n sequences which match the list.

• lookup_OEIS(q, subset)
Tries to find sequences which are represented by the binary quadratic form with coefficient list q = [a, b, c] and which have elements in the 'subset', which is one of  'all', 'primitively' or 'prime'.
```SloaneEncyclopedia.install()
# Comment this line out after the first call. This function updates
# the database and it is sufficient to call it only once in a while.

def OEIS_ID(T, num) :

s = []
for a in A :
sa = str(a)
L = "A000000"[0:7-len(sa)]

Examples:

## List of positive definite quadratic forms

```def posDefQF():
c = 1
while True:
yield (1, 1, c)
yield (1, 0, c)
c += 1

def listPosDefQF(len, filter = 'all'):
F = posDefQF()
for i in range(len):
q = F.next()
lookup_OEIS(q, filter)
```

Calls to listPosDefQF(100) and listPosDefQF(100, 'prime') produce, when combined, the list:

## Number of represented integers below N as a function of the discriminant

Looking at the examples above the impression arises that the number of integers which are represented by a positive definite form decreases when the absolute value of the discriminant increases. The following numerical experiment confirms this. The clear upper bound in the plot below calls for an explanation.

```def numberOfPosDefQF(n, belowOrEqual, filter = 'all'):
F = posDefQF()
L = []
for i in range(n):
q = F.next()
Q = binaryQF(q)
rep = Q.represented_positives(belowOrEqual, filter, verbose = False)
d = Q.discriminant()
L.append((-d, len(rep)))
return L

print numberOfPosDefQF(10, 100)

(3, 36), (4, 43), (7, 41), (8, 51), (11, 39), (12, 36),
(15, 30), (16, 32), (19, 36), (20, 32)]
```

This might take a while:

```A = numberOfPosDefQF(500, 10000)
R = numberOfPosDefQF(500, 10000, 'primitively')
P = numberOfPosDefQF(500, 10000, 'prime')
```
```allplot = list_plot(A[5::], color='blue', legend_label='all reps')
primeplot = list_plot(P[5::], color='purple', legend_label='prime reps')
combi = allplot + primeplot
combi.axes_labels(['positive definite QF with discriminant -n',\
'number of reps below 10000'])
show(combi, title='Number of reps as a function of the discriminant.',\
frame=True, legend_loc="upper right")
```

Please report bugs immediately to the author. Suggestions for improvements and extensions are welcome.
