The Diophantine equation below,

$$ x_0^{2} - (x_1^{2}+x_2^{2}+x_3^{2}+x_4^{2}+x_5^{2}+x_6^{2}+x_7^{2}+x_8^{2})=1$$

1. Does above equation have any specific name?

2. What are the solutions(a formula)??

3. in the case,$$x_8^{2}=0$$ , does anything special happen??

4.

Any kind of comment would help!!
