The only alternative is b = −1, in which case a = 0, yielding the unique solution y = 0 and x = 1. 13. Use the preceding method in the ring Z[ −2] to prove that the only integral solutions of y 2 = x3 − 2 are x = 3, y = ±5. Later we will be thinking of the set of solutions to equations such as these geometrically, so we will describe the solutions as points (x, y) in the plane. Now consider the example y 2 = x3 − 3. 9) 54 2 Diophantine Equations Experimentation with small integers suggests that there will be no integral solutions, but we encounter a diﬃculty when we try to prove this using the preceding methods.
6 Proving the Fundamental Theorem of Arithmetic 35 are inﬁnitely many Carmichael numbers until 1994, when Alford, Granville, and Pomerance not only proved that there are inﬁnitely many but gave some measure of how many there are asymptotically. The existence of inﬁnitely many Carmichael numbers renders the test based on Fermat’s Little Theorem test too unreliable. Later, we will see however that a more sophisticated version is salvageable as a primality test. 6 Proving the Fundamental Theorem of Arithmetic We uncover Euclid’s real genius once we try to prove the Fundamental Theorem of Arithmetic.
Given any nonzero q ∈ Q, write q = 2r q , where r ∈ Z and the numerator and denominator of q are odd. Deﬁne the S-norm of q to be |q|S = |q |. The ring R has inﬁnitely many units, consisting of the rational numbers ±2k for k ∈ Z. The ring R is sometimes called the ring of S-integers of Z, and its units are known as S-units. 16. |S . The next exercise will provide a further illustration of some of the techniques needed to prove Siegel’s Theorem. We have already seen examples where the Fundamental Theorem √ of Arithmetic fails in some quadratic rings.
