Dear David,

i have the slight suspision that there may be counterexamples
for n=3 mod 4 but not for n=1 mod 4

even if i could not prove it.

I know that you are very fast in replying.
If you find one counterexample of the form n=1 mod 4
i would be glad to know it.

Sorry that i bother you with such a lot of questions,
but i hope that there will be some success.

p = 1 mod 4

Nice Greetings from the primes

Here are some scores out of 5:

{A(k,x)=sum(j=0,k/2,(-1)^j*binomial(k-j,j)*x^(k-2*j));}
{B(k,x)=sum(j=0,(k-1)/2,(-1)^j*binomial(k-j-1,j)*x^(k-2*j-1));}
{L=[-1,1,0,-2,2];S=Set(L);for(k=2,40,f=factor(A(k,x)-B(k,x))[,1];
g=f[#f];c=0;for(j=1,#L,if(setsearch(S,subst(g,x,L[j])),c++));
print1(c","));}

4,4,3,4,4,4,4,4,4,4,4,3,4,4,4,5,4,4,4,4,5,4,4,4,4,5,4,4,4,5,5,4,4,4,4,4,5,4,3,
