COMMENTS

c^2 = b^2 + a^2 with c > b > a relatively prime, i.e. a primitive Pythagorean triple

Note two curiosities for 6th term p(6) = cat(461, 280, 261) = prime(24423734):

cat(261, 380, 461): 261380461 = prime(14267135) also prime, SMALLEST of this type

Additionally p(6) is also the FIRST such concatenation with a prime hypotenuse: 461 = prime(89) Same is true for p(8) = 1249960799 = prime(62841771), 7999601249 = prime(367766086), 1249 = prime(204)

p(15) = 25812460781 = prime(1125896092), 78124602581 = prime(3250321954)

but hypotenuse 2581 = 29 * 89 and short leg 781 = 11 * 71 are both composite

p(18) = 47094700291= prime(2001581081), 29147004709 = prime(1264629019), 4709 = 17 * 277, 291 = 3 * 97

EXAMPLE

25^2 = 24^2 + 7^2, and cat(25, 24, 7) = 25247 is prime, so 25247 is in the sequence.

5^2 = 4^2 + 3^2, but cat(5, 4, 3) = 543 = 3*181 is not prime, so 543 is not in the sequence.
