Jonathan Reynolds

I teach mathematics at INTO UEA

My main research area is Number Theory. In particular, I study interactions between the arithmetic of divisibility sequences and the solvability of Diophantine equations.

An Open Question
Suppose that x^3-y^2=2z^6, where x,y,z are nonzero pairwise coprime integers. If z is a perfect power then does z=1?

PHD THESIS

Extending Siegel's Theorem for Elliptic Curves. I was examined by Prof. John Cremona and Prof. Thomas Ward. My supervisors were Prof. Graham Everest and Prof. Shaun Stevens. (Some theorems in this thesis can be developed further and some questions which arise have now been resolved.)
