Triangular Numbers Multiple of Triangular Numbers and Solutions of Pell Equations

  title={Triangular Numbers Multiple of Triangular Numbers and Solutions of Pell Equations},
  author={Vladimir Pletser},
For all positive non-square integer multiplier k, there is an infinity of multiples of triangular numbers which are also triangular numbers. With a simple change of variables, these triangular numbers can be found using solutions of Pell equations. With some conditions on parities of fundamental solutions of the simple and generalized Pell equations, only odd solutions of the generalized Pell equation are retained to provide many infinitely solutions found on branches corresponding to each of…

When are Multiples of Polygonal Numbers again Polygonal Numbers?

International audience Euler showed that there are infinitely many triangular numbers that are three times other triangular numbers. In general, it is an easy consequence of the Pell equation that

Finding all squared integers expressible as the sum of consecutive squared integers using generalized Pell equation solutions with Chebyshev polynomials

Square roots s of sums of M consecutive integer squares starting from a 2 � 1 are integers if M � 0,9,24 or 33(mod72); or M � 1,2 or 16(mod24); or M � 11(mod12) and cannot be integers if M �

Pell’s Equation

An arbitrary quadratic diophantine equation with two unknowns can be reduced to a Pell-type equation. How can such equations be solved? Recall that the general solution of a linear diophantine

Recurrent Relations for Multiple of Triangular Numbers being Triangular Numbers

We search for triangular numbers that are multiples of other triangular numbers. It is found that for any positive non-square integer multiplier, there is an infinity of multiples of triangular

The Pell equation

The so-called Pell equation x2 − ny2 = 1 (wrongly attributed to Pell by Euler) is one of the oldest equations in mathematics and it is fundamental to the study of quadratic Diophantine equations. The

Solving the Pell equation

We illustrate recent developments in computational number theory by studying their implications for solving the Pell equation. We shall see that, if the solutions to the Pell equation are properly

An update of the most accessible introductory number theory text available, Fundamental Number Theory with Applications, Second Edition presents a mathematically rigorous yet easy-to-follow treatment

Introduction to Number Theory

This seems simple enough, but let’s play with this definition. The Pythagoreans, an ancient sect of mathematical mystics, said that a number is perfect if it equals the sum of its positive integral

On the diophantine equation x2 − Dy2 = n

AbstractWe propose a method to determine the solvability of the diophantine equation x2 − Dy2 = n for the following two cases: (1)D = pq, where p, q ≡ 1 mod 4 are distinct primes with $(\tfrac{q}
