COMMENTS

Essentially a duplicate of A063376.

a(n) written in base 2: a(0) = 10, a(n) for n >= 1: 110, 10100, 1001000, 100010000, ..., i.e., number 1, (n-1) times 0, number 1, n times 0 (see A163664). a(n) is a bisection of A005418. - Jaroslav Krizek, Aug 14 2009

Central terms of the triangle in A173786. - Reinhard Zumkeller, Feb 28 2010

For n > 0 let 2^(n+1) be the length of the even leg of a primitive Pythagorean triangle (PPT); then the odd leg is constrained to have a length of 4^n-1 and the hypotenuse to have a length of 4^n+1. The resulting triangle has a semiperimeter of 4^n + 2^n. - Frank M Jackson, Dec 28 2017
