(See Nagell =-=[6]-=-.) There is a one-to-one correspondence between the solutions (y-c^z^) of (4) and (^{,2£) of (5) where ~yi = byi because ~y\ = b(b - a + az\) , and hence y ^ is always an integer.

Citation Context ...wever, none of these formulas are general. More recently, there has been considerable work on P-sets with polynomials (by Jones [2, 3]) and in connection with Fibonacci numbers (by Hoggatt and Bergum =-=[4]-=-). It is of interest to find out how much these sets can be extended by adding new positive integers to the set; for example [2, 12] can be extended to [2, 12, 420], A P-set which cannot be extended w... |

Now, as abcN 3 + (ab + bo + oa)N 2 + (a + b + £)/!/ + 1 has no squared linear factor in N, by Baker =-=[7]-=-, N < exp{(10 6 #) 1()6 }. Until recently there was no way of knowing if a P-set was nonextendible if it had four elements. However, in Baker and Davenport [8], it has been proved that [1, 3, 8, 120] ... |
