 OFFSET 1,8 COMMENTS Number of ways in which n can be the leg (other than the hypotenuse) of a primitive or nonprimitive right triangle. Number of ways that 2/n can be written as a sum of exactly two distinct unit fractions. For every solution to 2/n = 1/x + 1/y, x < y, the Pythagorean triple is (n, y-x, x+y-n). - T. D. Noe, Sep 11 2002 For n>2, the positions of the ones in this sequence correspond to the prime numbers and their doubles, A001751 - Ant King, Jan 29 2011 Let L = length of longest leg, H = hypotenuse. For odd n: L =(n^2-1)/2 and H = L+1.  For even n,  L = (n^2-4)/4 and H = L+2. - Richard R. Forberg, May 31 2013 Or number of ways n^2 can be written as the difference of two positive squares: a(3) = 1: 3^2 = 5^2-4^2; a(8) = 2: 8^2 = 10^2-6^2 = 17^2-15^2; a(16) = 3: 16^2 = 20^2-12^2 = 34^2-30^2 = 65^2-63^2. - Alois P.

Eric Weisstein's World of Mathematics, Pythagorean Triple FORMULA For odd n, a(n) = A018892(n) - 1. Let n = (2^a0)*(p1^a1)*...*(pk^ak). Then a(n) = [(2*a0 - 1)*(2*a1 + 1)*(2*a2 + 1)*(2*a3 + 1)*...*(2*ak + 1) - 1]/2. Note that if there is no a0 term, i.e. if n is odd, then the first term is simply omitted. - Temple Keller (temple.keller(AT)gmail.com), Jan 05 2008 For odd n, a(n) = (tau(n^2) - 1) / 2; for even n, a(n) = (tau((n / 2)^2) - 1) / 2. - Amber Hu (hupo001(AT)gmail.com), Jan 23 2008 MATHEMATICA a[n_] := (DivisorSigma[0, If[OddQ[n], n, n / 2]^2] - 1) / 2; Table[a[i], {i, 100}] (* Amber Hu (hupo001(AT)gmail.com), Jan 23 2008 *) a[ n_] := Length @ FindInstance[ n > 0 && y > 0 && z > 0 && n^2 + y^2 == z^2, {y, z}, Integers, 10^9]; (* Michael Somos, Jul 25 2018 *) PROG (Sage) def A046079(n) : return (number_of_divisors(n^2 if n%2==1 else n^2/4) - 1) // 2 # Eric M.
