COMMENTS

Mordell's equation has a finite number of integral solutions for all nonzero n. Gebel computes the solutions for n < 10^5. Sequence A081121 gives n for which there are no integral solutions to y^2 = x^3 - n. See A081119 for the number of integral solutions to y^2 = x^3 + n. - T. D. Noe, Mar 06 2003
