A new tricubic sum for three!

3 = 569936821221962380720^3 + (-569936821113563493509)^3 + (-472715493453327032)^3

Here’s a nice Numberphile interview with Andrew Booker about the new discovery. They also talk about Hilbert’s tenth problem, undecidability, the reasons for doing computer searches like this, the role of science communication (such as Numberphile) in spurring discovery, and other things.

See my previous blog post for why this is interesting!

Leave a reply. You can include LaTeX $latex like this$. Note you have to literally write 'latex' after the first dollar sign!
