# Extending Waring's conjecture to 471,600,000

@article{Kubina1990ExtendingWC, title={Extending Waring's conjecture to 471,600,000}, author={J. Kubina and M. Wunderlich}, journal={Mathematics of Computation}, year={1990}, volume={55}, pages={815-820} }

Two computer techniques are described that the authors used to confirm Waring's Conjecture to 471,600,000, thus extending R. M. Stemmler's result of 200,000 computed in 1964. M. C. Wunderlich increased the result to 175,600,000 in August 1988, and in the following October, J. M. Kubina, using a method suggested by Jean-Marc Deshouillers, raised it to 471,600,000. In 1770 Edward Waring asserted in his Meditationes Algebraicae that every positive integer can be written as the sum of four squares… Expand
