This question already has an answer here:
I’m blind about integer solutions of a polynomial. I have no number theory background, but I’m curious about how to figure out all integer solutions of a polynomial, for example this question. It is said there are only two solutions, but I can’t give a proof. What I can show is that there are no even solutions. I am actually curious about the general pattern to consider this kind of problem. Can anyone give me some ideas or references? Thanks!
