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 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS s = 1 and t = 2 are the initial seed numbers; they give the first Pythagorean pair x = 3, y = 4. Then take s = x, t = y for next seed numbers; these give the next Pythagorean pair x = |s^2-t^2|, y = 2st. Then take s = x, t = y and so on. LINKS Planet Math, Pythagorean Triplet EXAMPLE a(9) = 527^2-336^2 = 164833 because a(7) = 527 and a(8) = 336.
