It is well-known that pythagorean triples can be represented by points of the unit circle with rational coordinates. These points form an abelian group, and we describe its structure. This structural description yields, almost immediately, an enumeration of the normalized pythagorean triples with a given hypotenuse, and also to an effective method for producing all such triples. This effective method seems to be new. This paper is intended for the general mathematical audience, including…

Connections of Class Numbers to the Group Structure of Generalized Pythagorean Triples

Two well-studied Diophantine equations are those of Pythagorean triples and elliptic curves; for the first we have a parametrization through rational points on the unit circle, and for the second we
