Tool to generate Pythagorean triples. A Pythagorean triple is a set of three natural integer numbers (a,b,c), such that a^2+b^2=c^2

A Pythagorean triplet is a set of three natural numbers \( a \), \( b \) and \( c \) such that \( a^2+b^2=c^2 \)

Example: (3,4,5) is a triplet of Pythagoras because \( 3^2+4^2=5^2 \)

It exists heuristics to find a **Pythagore Triple** but the easiest method consists in testing iteratively all possibilities of a and b when s is given, the value of c is constrained by s=a+b+c.

The following equations can be deducted:

$$ a^2 + b^2 = (s − a − b)^2 \\ a <= (s − 3)/3 \\ b < (s − a)/2 $$

Example: If \( s = 12 \), then \( a <= 3 \) and \( b < 4.5 \), a quick test allows to find \( a = 3, b = 4 \) and get the triple \( \{3,4,5\} \).

(14,48,50) | (15,20,25) | (15,36,39) |

(16,30,34) | (16,63,65) | (18,24,30) |

(18,80,82) | (20,21,29) | (20,48,52) |

(36,48,60) | (36,77,85) | (39,52,65) |

(39,80,89) | (40,42,58) | (40,75,85) |

(42,56,70) | (45,60,75) | (48,55,73) |

(48,64,80) | (51,68,85) | (54,72,90) |

(57,76,95) | (60,63,87) | (60,80,100) |

(65,72,97) |

There is no Pythagorean triplet with 2 identical values. Indeed if 2 sides are \( a \) (natural integer), the last side is \( a \sqrt2 \) which can not be an integer.

Example: \( a = 1 \) the triplet becomes \( (1, 1, \sqrt2) \). By scaling, it is not possible to obtain an both isosceles and right triangle with integer sides.
