Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

a(n) is prime for n in A240749. - Robert Israel, Jul 06 2017

If p and q are primes such that p > q > 3, then ((p^2 - q^2)/2, p*q, (p^2 + q^2)/2) is a primitive Pythagorean triple. - César Aguilera, Jun 02 2022

FORMULA

a(n)^2 = A124434(n)^2 + A006094(n)^2. - César Aguilera, Jun 02 2022

EXAMPLE

a(2)=17 because (prime(3)^2 + prime(2)^2)/2 = (5^2 + 3^2)/2 = 17.
