A239356 Begin with a(0) = 3. Let a(n) for n > 0 be the smallest positive integer not yet in the sequence which forms part of a Primitive Pythagorean Triple (PPT) when paired with a(n-1). 1

COMMENTS

I.e., the GCD of a(n) and a(n-1) is 1. That is why a(4)= 13 as opposed to A235598(4), which is 9.

Is the sequence infinite? Probably. But will it eventually contain all the terms of A042965 which are greater than 2? Probably not.
