Abstract Dujella and Pethő, generalizing a result of Baker and Davenport, proved that the set { 1 , 3 } cannot be extended to a Diophantine quintuple. As a consequence of our main result, we show that the Diophantine pair { 1 , b } is regular if b − 1 is a prime power.

For $$n\ge 1$$, the nth Ramanujan prime is defined as the least positive integer $$R_{n}$$ such that for all $$x\ge R_{n}$$, the interval $$(\frac{x}{2}, x]$$ has at least n primes. Let $$p_{i}$$ be the ith prime and $$R_{n}=p_{s}$$. Sondow, Laishram, and other scholars gave a series of upper bounds of s. In this paper we establish several results giving estimates of upper and lower bounds of Ramanujan primes. Using these estimates, we discuss a conjecture on Ramanujan primes of Sondow–Nicholson...

Abstract Using the idea of Hajdu–Saradha–Tijdeman and the sharp estimate of the Chebyshev function θ ( x ) obtained by Dusart, we prove the P -integer conjecture, i.e. if k is a P -integer, then k ∈ { 2 , 4 , 6 , 12 , 18 , 30 } .

Let a, b, c, d be given nonnegative integers with a,d⩾1. Using Chebyshevʼs inequalities for the function π(x) and some results concerning arithmetic progressions of prime numbers, we study the Diophantine equation ∏k=1n(ak2+bk+c)=dyl,gcd(a,b,c)=1,l⩾2, where ax2+bx+c is an irreducible quadratic polynomial. We provide a computable sharp upper bound to n. Using this bound, we entirely prove some conjectures due to Amdeberhan, Medina and Moll (2008) . Moreover, we obtain all the positive integer ...

Let a,b,and cbe positive integers. We show that if (a,b) =(N^k-1,N) where N,k\geq 2 then there is at most one positive integer solution (x,y)to the exponential Diophantine equation |a^x-b^y|=c unless (N,k)=(2,2) Combining this with results of Bennett  and the first author , we stated all cases for which the equation |(N^k \pm 1)^x - N^y|=chas more than one positive integer solutions (x,y)

For all previous constructions of 2 x 2 lattice space-time codes with a positive diversity product, the rank r(2) was such that r(2) ≤ 4. An example of a 2 x 2 lattice space-time code of rank 5 with a positive diversity product was given by Xing and Li. In this paper, we give an example of a 2 x 2 lattice space-time code of rank 8 with a positive diversity product. This gives an answer to the open problem set by Xing and Li.
