Integer points on elliptic curves

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


We show that the number of integer points on an elliptic curve y2 = f(x) with X0 < x ≤ X0 + X is 蠐 X1/2 where the implicit constant depends at most on the degree of f(x). This improves on various bounds of Cohen [4], Bombieri and Pila [1] and of Pila [9], and others. In particular it follows that the number of positive integral solutions to x3 + y2 = n is 蠐 n1/6.
