The generalised Diophantine m-tuples

Anup Dixit


A set of natural numbers $\{a_1, a_2, \cdots, a_m\}$ is said to be a Diophantine $m$-tuple with property $D(n)$ if $a_ia_j +n$ is a perfect square for $i
eq j$. One may ask, what is the largest $m$ for which such a tuple exists. This problem has a long history, attracting the attention of many, including Fermat, Baker, Davenport etc, with significant progress made in recent times due to Dujella and others. In this talk, we consider a similar question by replacing the condition $a_ia_j+n$ from being a square to $k$-th powers. This is joint work with Ram Murty and Seoyoung Kim.

This talk will be accessible to graduate students!
