Positive integer solutions of some Diophantine equations in terms of integer sequences

  • Refik Keskin
  • Zafer ŞiarEmail author


In this paper, we define some new number sequences, which we represent as \( (B_{n}),(b_{n}),(y_{n})\) and present relations of these new sequences with each other. Then, we give all positive integer solutions of some Diophantine equations in terms of these new sequences.
