Andrzej Schinzel, born in 1937, is a number one quantity theorist whose paintings has had an enduring impression on sleek arithmetic. he's the writer of over two hundred learn articles in a number of branches of arithmetics, together with easy, analytic, and algebraic quantity idea. He has additionally been, for almost forty years, the editor of Acta Arithmetica, the 1st overseas magazine committed solely to quantity thought. Selecta, a two-volume set, includes Schinzel's most vital articles released among 1955 and 2006. The association is by means of subject, with each one significant class brought by way of an expert's remark. some of the hundred chosen papers care for arithmetical and algebraic homes of polynomials in a single or numerous variables, yet there also are articles on Euler's totient functionality, the favourite topic of Schinzel's early examine, on leading numbers (including the well-known paper with Sierpinski at the speculation "H"), algebraic quantity concept, diophantine equations, analytical quantity thought and geometry of numbers. Selecta concludes with a few papers from outdoors quantity concept, in addition to a listing of unsolved difficulties and unproved conjectures, taken from the paintings of Schinzel. A booklet of the ecu Mathematical Society (EMS). dispensed in the Americas via the yankee Mathematical Society.

Then f (x) = g(x) identically, where g(x) is a polynomial with integral coefficients. Professor LeVeque raised the question (in conversation) whether, if f (x) is representable as a sum of two squares for every positive integer x, or for every sufficiently large integer x, then f (x) is identically a sum of two squares. We shall prove that this is true, and we shall deduce it from the following general theorem. Theorem 2. Let K be any normal algebraic number field of degree n, with integral basis ω1 , ω2 , .

6] −−, Diophantische Gleichungen. Berlin, 1938. Originally published in Acta Arithmetica XXXI (1976), 199–204 Andrzej Schinzel Selecta On the equation y m = P (x) with R. Tijdeman (Leiden) The aim of this paper is to prove the following Theorem. If a polynomial P (x) with rational coefficients has at least two distinct zeros then the equation (1) y m = P (x), x, y integers, |y| > 1, implies m < c(P ) where c(P ) is an effectively computable constant. For a fixed m the Diophantine equation (1) has been thoroughly investigated before (see [1] and [4]) and the known results together with the above theorem imply immediately Corollary 1.

Proof of the Corollary to Theorem 2. It follows from the theorem, on taking K = Q(i), that f (x) = U12 (x) + U22 (x), where U1 , U2 are polynomials with rational coefficients. Let U1 (x) + iU2 (x) = αν(x), where ν(x) is a primitive polynomial whose coefficients are integers in Q(i) and α is an element of Q(i). Then f (x) = |α|2 ν(x)¯ν (x). Since ν(x) and ν¯ (x) are both primitive and f (x) has integral coefficients, it follows from Gauss’s lemma that |α|2 is an integer. e. |α|2 = |β|2 , where β is an integer in Q(i).
