Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

COMMENTS

Mordell's equation has a finite number of integral solutions for all nonzero n. Gebel computes the solutions for n < 10^5. Sequence A054504 gives n for which there are no integral solutions to y^2 = x^3 + n. See A081120 for the number of integral solutions to y^2 = x^3 - n.

This is the complement of A106265. - M. F. Hasler, Oct 05 2013
