COMMENTS

Multiples of Pythagorean primes A002144 or of primitive Pythagorean triangles' hypotenuses A008846.  Lekraj Beedassy, Nov 12 2003
It appears that this is exactly the sequence of positive integers with at least one prime divisor of the form 4k + 1. (This has been verified for all terms less than or equal to 500.) Compare A072592.  John W. Layman, Mar 12 2008
The conjecture by Layman is correct. It is well known that the hypotenuses of primitive Pythagorean triples are precisely those numbers with all prime divisors of the form 4k + 1.  Franklin T. AdamsWatters, Apr 26 2009
Circumradius R of the triangles such that the area, the sides and R are integers.  Michel Lagneau, Mar 03 2012
The 2 squares summing to a(n)^2 cannot be equal because sqrt(2) is not rational.  JeanChristophe Hervé, Nov 10 2013
Closed under multiplication. The primitive elements are those with exactly one prime divisor of the form 4k + 1 with multiplicity one, which are also those for which there exists a unique integer triangle = A084645.  JeanChristophe Hervé, Nov 11 2013
a(n) are numbers whose square is the mean of two distinct nonzero squares. This creates 1to1 mapping between a Pythagorean triple and a "Mean" triple. If the Pythagorean triple is written, abnormally, as {j, k, h} where j^2 +(j+k)^2 = h^2, and h = a(n), then the corresponding "Mean" triple with the same h is {k, 2j, h} where (k^2 + (k+2j)^2)/2 = h^2. For example for h = 5, the Pythagorean triple is {3, 1, 5} and the Mean triple is {1, 6, 5}.  Richard R. Forberg, Mar 01 2015
