28 Jul 2016  ·  Patel Vandita, Siksek Samir ·

Let $k \ge 2$ be even, and let $r$ be a non-zero integer. We show that for almost all $d \ge 2$ (in the sense of natural density), the equation $$ x^k+(x+r)^k+\cdots+(x+(d-1)r)^k=y^n, \qquad x,~y,~n \in \mathbb{Z}, \qquad n \ge 2, $$ has no solutions...
