What does the function O represent?

Rather, I meant to ask whether you'd be able to write the second problem's solution out explicitly. It isn't coming together for whatever reason...

it would be fantastic if you could complete the solution and formalize the definition.

@Peter Fixed. It was a typo.

Seems I did not read it properly last night. Thank you.

comment at least $a\sqrt{n}$ solutions
@GerryMyerson I didn't know what else to put down as a reason to begin a bounty. ALso, you have not gotten to $2\pi$- perhaps adding the 'looking at a thinner shell' to your answer would help. I have tried the same thing, but have not been able to approach $2\pi$ very well either.

comment at least $a\sqrt{n}$ solutions
A teacher of mine mentioned this as a joking challenge some weeks ago, and I don't think anyone gave it second thought. I looked at it and tried to liken the problem to a sphere, but it did not yield a good result. And then I asked the teacher in question, and he said he'd forgotten the proof! Thought I'd try my luck here.

Hah, no. That was an accident. Fixed.

This is rather nice- what is $j$, though?
