COMMENTS

From Robert G. Wilson v, Mar 20 2017: (Start)
For n odd, the center of the circle is in the middle of the center square and thus a(2n1) == 1 (mod 4).
For n even, the center of the circle is at the four corners of the center 4 squares and thus a(2n) == 0 (mod 4). (End)

FORMULA

Conjecture: a(n) <= A124623(n) with equality in most cases.  Sean A. Irvine, Sep 03 2021


EXAMPLE

a(2)=4 because an inscribed circle in a 2 X 2 grid covers at least 50% of each of the unit squares within it.
