Abstract

A primitive Pythagorean triple is a set of positive integers, x, y and z, such that x and y are relatively prime and x2+y2=z2. In this thesis several partitions of the set Pp of primitive Pythagorean triples are studied. Also interesting properties of these partitions are derived. These properties are used to develop a two-dimensional array of Pp.
