hello there,
Has anybody of you got ideas on how to solve some special cubic
Diophantine Equations like [rewritten in ascii]:
(1) a^3 pm b^3 = c^2 where pm means plus or minus
(2) a^2 pm b^2 = c^3
aa  bb can be factored (ab)(a+b) and we can set each factor to a cube, say
d^3 and e^3, both odd or both even, and we get a parametric solution:
c = de
a = (d+e)/2
b = (ed)/2.
where d and e are arbitrary. The same approach works for the equation aa pm
bb = c^s for any s>1.
aa + bb can be factored in the ring Z[i]: (a+bi)(abi) = aa + bb, and that
ring has the unique factorization property, so the continuation is similar.
I can't say much about (1).

hello Larry,
thanks for the translation again. I used the Alt Gr 2 and 3 key
combination for square and cube, which is inconvenient here  sorry
again.
And thanks for your hints. Equation (2) may be regarded as solved
then.
best wishes, Wolfgang.
