More on Diophantine Sextuples



A rational Diophantine m-tuple is a set of m nonzero rationals such that the product of any two of them increased by 1 is a perfect square. The first rational Diophantine quadruple was found by Diophantus, while Euler proved that there are infinitely many rational Diophantine quintuples. In 1999, Gibbs found the first example of a rational Diophantine sextuple, and Dujella, Kazalicki, Mikić and Szikszai recently proved that there exist infinitely many rational Diophantine sextuples.

In this paper, generalizing the work of Piezas, we describe a method for generating new parametric formulas for rational Diophantine sextuples.
