A278711 Triangle T read by rows: T(n, m), for n >= 2, and m=1, 2, ..., n-1, equals the positive integer solution x of y^2 = x^3 - A(n, m)^2*x with the area A(n, m) = A249869(n, m) of the primitive Pythagorean triangle characterized by (n, m) or 0 if no such triangle exists. 2

COMMENTS
The corresponding triangle with the square root of the positive integer solutions y is A278712.
A primitive Pythagorean triangle is characterized by two integers n > m >= 1, gcd(n, m) = 1 and n+m odd. See A249866, also for references.
For the one-to-one correspondence between rational Pythagorean triangles with area A > 0 and rational points on the elliptic curve y^2 = x^3 - A^2*x with y not vanishing see Theorem 4.1 of the Keith Conrad link or Theorem 15.6, p. 212, of the Ash-Gross reference.

FORMULA
T(n, m) = (n^2 - m^2)*n^2 if n > m >= 1, gcd(n, m) = 1 and n+m is odd, and T(n, m) = 0 otherwise.
