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
