A253804 a(n) gives the odd leg of the second of the two Pythagorean triangles with hypotenuse A080109(n) = A002144(n)^2. This is the larger of the two possible odd legs. 3

%N a(n) gives the odd leg of the second of the two Pythagorean triangles with hypotenuse A080109(n) = A002144(n)^2. This is the larger of the two possible odd legs.

%C The corresponding even legs are given in 4*A253805.

%C The legs of the other Pythagorean triangle with hypotenuse A080109(n) are given A253802(n) (odd) and A253803(n) (even).

%C Each fourth power of a prime of the form 1 (mod 4) (see A002144(n)^= A080175(n)) has exactly two representations as sum of two positive squares (Fermat). See the Dickson reference, (B) on p. 227.

%C This means that there are exactly two Pythagorean triangles (modulo leg exchange) for each hypotenuse A080109(n) = A002144(n)^2, n >= 1. See the Dickson reference, (A) on p. 227.

%C Concerning the primitivity question of these triangles see a comment on A253802.

%F A080175(n) = A002144(n)^4 = a(n)^2 + (4*A253805(n))^2,

%F n >= 1, that is,

%F a(n) = sqrt(A080175(n) - (4*A253805(n))^2), n >= 1.

%e n = 7: A080175(7) = 7890481 = 53^4 = 2809^2; A002144(7)^4 = a(7)^2 + (4*A253805(7))^2 = 2385^2 + (4*371)^2.

%e The other Pythagorean triangle with hypotenuse 53^2 = 2809 has odd leg A253802(7) = 1241 and even leg 4*A253303(7) = 4*630 = 2520: 53^4 = 1241^2 + (4*630)^2.
