 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS m^3+(m+1)^3+(m+2)^3=3(1+m)*(3+2*m+m^2). Corresponding values of m are -1,0,1,23. The equation s^2 = 3c^3 + 6c can be transformed using the substitution X = 3c, Y = 3s into Y^2 = X^3 + 18X, a form of the Weierstrass equation of an elliptic curve: Y^2 = X^3 + aX^2 + bX + c, with a = c = 0. We can now use the Sage program to show that there are no other integer solutions. - Jaap Spies, May 27 2007 Confirmed by MAGMA - see code below. - Warut Roonguthai, May 28 2007 That there are no other integer solutions is a theorem of Uchiyama, rediscovered by Cassels. For n consecutive cubes summing to a square, see A218979. - Jonathan Sondow, Apr 03 2014 LINKS J. W. S. Cassels, A Diophantine equation, Glasgow Math. J., 27 (1985), 11-18.
