I decided to change the name of the subject to reflect the actual subject.

The latest run of Pythagorean Triples are all in the form
2 sqrt x, x - 1, x + 1, where x is a perfect square greater than 1.

x=4: 4, 3, 5
x=9: 6, 8, 10
x=16: 8, 15, 17
x=25: 10, 24, 26
x=36: 12, 35, 37
x=49: 14, 48, 50
x=64: 16, 63, 65
x=81: 18, 80, 82
x=100: 20, 99, 101

Some of these are multiples of other Pythagorean triples, but now we have a
foundation for generating another list of triples.
