An Identity for Generating a Special Kind of Pythagorean Quadruples

Authors: Brian Ekanyu

This paper proves an identity for generating a special kind of Pythagorean quadruples by conjecturing that the shortest is defined by a=1,2,3,4...... and b=a+1, c=ab and d=c+1. It also shows that a+d=b+c and that the surface area to volume ratio of these Pythagorean boxes is given by 4/a where a is the length of the shortest edge(side).
