The Problem of Catalan

The Problem of Catalan By Yuri F. Bilu, Yann Bugeaud, Maurice Mignotte
2014 | 251 Pages | ISBN: 3319100939 | PDF | 2 MB

In 1842 the Belgian mathematician Eugène Charles Catalan asked whether 8 and 9 are the only consecutive pure powers of non-zero integers. 160 years after, the question was answered affirmatively by the Swiss mathematician of Romanian origin Preda Mihăilescu.

In this book we give a complete and (almost) self-contained exposition of Mihăilescu's work, which must be understandable by a curious university student, not necessarily specializing in Number Theory. We assume very modest background: a standard university course of algebra, including basic Galois theory, and working knowledge of basic algebraic number theory.
