Theorem Two representations are considered different if their terms are in different order or if the integer being squared (not just the square) is different; to illustrate, these are three of the eight different ways to represent 1: {estilo de exibição {começar{alinhado}&1^{2}+0^{2}+0^{2}+0^{2}\&0^{2}+1^{2}+0^{2}+0^{2}\&(-1)^{2}+0^{2}+0^{2}+0^{2}.fim{alinhado}}} The number of ways to represent n as the sum of four squares is eight times the sum of the divisors of n if n is odd and 24 times the sum of the odd divisors of n if n is even (see divisor function), ou seja.

{estilo de exibição r_{4}(n)=8sum _{mmid n,,4nmid m}m.} We may also write this as {estilo de exibição r_{4}(n)=8sigma (n)-32sigma (n/4) ,} where the second term is to be taken as zero if n is not divisible by 4. Em particular, for a prime number p we have the explicit formula r4(p) = 8(p + 1). Some values of r4(n) occur infinitely often as r4(n) = r4(2mn) whenever n is even. The values of r4(n) can be arbitrarily large: na verdade, r4(n) is infinitely often larger than 8√log n. Proof The theorem can be proved by elementary means starting with the Jacobi triple product. The proof shows that the Theta series for the lattice Z4 is a modular form of a certain level, and hence equals a linear combination of Eisenstein series.
