COMMENTS

The primary key is the increasing length of the hypotenuse, A020882. If there is more than one solution with that hypotenuse, the (secondary) sorting key is the (increasing) even leg - that is, the terms go in the increasing order. [Corrected by Andrey Zabolotskiy, Oct 31 2019]

Only the even legs 'b' of reduced triangles with gcd(a,b,c)=1, a^2+b^2=c^2, a=q^2-p^2, b=2*p*q, c=q^2+p^2, gcd(p,q)=1 are listed.

FORMULA

a(n) = sqrt(A020882(n)^2-A180620(n)^2).

EXAMPLE

a(13) = sqrt(A020882(13)^2-A180620(13)^2) = sqrt(85^2-77^2) = sqrt(1296) = 36.
