why I read in http://mathworld.wolfram.com/DiophantineEquation2ndPowers.html
Parametric solutions to the 2.2.2 equation
are known (Dickson 2005; Guy 1994, p. 140). The number of solutions are given by the sum of squares function r_2(n)

Please tell me where its proof is

Beside, I have a exercise:
Find the general rational solution of the equation x^2 + y^2 = a^2 + b^2, where a and b are given rational numbers.
Can you solve it for me?
