Waring representations

Sums of squares

Item Value
unique (up to plus/minus and ordering) representation as sum of two squares . Note that existence and uniqueness both follow from it being a prime that is 1 mod 4.
This also corresponds to the factorization in the ring of Gaussian integers .
representations as sum of three squares (up to ordering and plus/minus equivalence)  Prime-generating polynomials
