(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A125667 Eta numbers (from the Japanese word for "pariah" or "outcaste"). These are the positive odd integers which can not be used to make a hypotenuse of a primitive Pythagorean triangle (PPT). 1

COMMENTS

Eta numbers are the odd complement of A020882.

Properties: A PPT hypotenuse has form (4k+1), but the converse is not true. Thus Eta numbers fall into two classes: #1 Odd integers which do not have form (4k+1), #2 Odd integers of form (4k+1) which are not members of A020882.

Eta numbers >1 can be the leg of PPT[a,b,c] but not a hypotenuse, while members of A020882 can be both. By Fermat's theorem, class #2 eta numbers are not prime.

FORMULA

Class #1 a(n) = E because E is nonnegative, odd and not equal to (4k+1). Class #2 a(n) = E because E=(4k+1) (not class #1) but is not a member of A020882

EXAMPLE

Class #1 a(6) = E because E is nonnegative, odd and not equal to (4k+1).

Class #2 a(4) = E because E is nonnegative, odd and E=(4k+1) but is not a member of A020882
