Short legs of Pythagorean triangles.
Also the natural numbers n such that there is an open knight's tour of the 4 X n chessboard.  Sharon Sela (sharonsela(AT)hotmail.com), Jan 02 2002
Also perimeters of integral triangles; equivalently, numbers n = a + b + c, where a + b > c, a + c > b, b + c > a, and a, b, c are integers (necessarily a, b, c, and n are positive).  Rick L. Shepherd, Aug 04 2013
