COMMENTS

With N=2n+1, such a triangle has sides N*u +/- M, 2*M*u (the latter being cut into M*u +/- N by the corresponding altitude) and inradius M*(N - M)*v. The first entry, in particular, is associated with sequence A023039.

FORMULA

a(n) = M(n)*D(n)*u(n)*v(n)/6, where (u, v) is the fundamental solution to x^2 - D*y^2 = 1, with M = 2*A074075(n); D = A074074(n) = N^2 - M^2.
