Part of the Developments in Mathematics book series (DEVM, volume 49)


A conjecture of R. Wm. Gosper concerning partitions of a number into four distinct squares of equal parity is presented and proved, and several related results are presented, including the fact that the number of partitions of a number of the form \(32n+28\) into four distinct even squares is exactly half the number of partitions of the number into four distinct odd squares.
