Annual Appeal: Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. In 2018 we replaced the server with a faster one, added 20000 new sequences, and reached 7000 citations (often saying "discovered thanks to the OEIS").

COMMENTS

Beukers and Stewart conjecture that for coprime integers n and m with n > m >= 2, and for any c > 0, the inequality 0 < |x^n - y^m| < c*X^(1-1/n-1/m) is true for infinitely many positive integers x and y, where X = max(x^n,y^m). They compute such x for 34 pairs (n,m). Given x, it is easy to compute y = round(x^(n/m)). Their tables have been extended to include all terms < 10^7 (or higher to obtain more terms).
