%N The ordered image of the 1-to-1 mapping of an integer ordered pair (x,y) into an integer using Cantor's pairing function, where 0 < x < y, gcd(x,y)=1 and x+y odd.

%C The mapping of the ordered pair (x,y) to an integer uses Cantor's pairing function to generate the integer as (x+y)(x+y+1)/2+y. Also for every ordered pair (x,y) such that 0 < x < y, gcd(x,y)=1 and x+y odd, there exists a primitive Pythagorean triple (PPT) (a, b, c) such that a = y^2-x^2, b = 2xy, c = x^2+y^2. Therefore each term in the sequence represents a unique PPT.

%C Numbers n for which 0 < A025581(n) < A002262(n) and A025581(n)+A002262(n) is odd, and gcd(A025581(n), A002262(n)) = 1. [The definition expressed with A-numbers.] - _Antti Karttunen_, Nov 02 2016

%C See also the triangle T(y, x) with the values for PPTs given in A278147. - _Wolfdieter Lang_, Nov 24 2016

%e a(5)=33 because the ordered pair (2,5) maps to 33 by Cantor's pairing function (see below) and is the 5th such occurrence. Also x=2, y=5 generates a PPT with sides (21,20,29).

%e Note: Cantor's pairing function is simply A001477 in its two-argument tabular form A001477(k, n) = n + (k+n)*(k+n+1)/2, thus A001477(2,5) = 5 + (2+5)*(2+5+1)/2 = 33. - _Antti Karttunen_, Nov 02 2016
