Sierpiński Constant


Let the sum of squares function r_k(n) denote the number of representations of n by k squares, then the summatory function of r_2(k)/k has the asymptotic expansion




(OEIS A241017) is the Sierpiński constant (Finch 2003, p. 123), beta(x) is the Dirichlet beta function, gamma is the Euler-Mascheroni constant, and Gamma(x) is the gamma function.
