# Euler's sum of powers conjecture

### 1729

He also provided a complete solution to the four cubes problem as in Plato's number or the taxicab number 1729.

### 1769

It was proposed by Leonhard Euler in 1769.

### 1911

Norrie, 1911) This is the smallest solution to the problem by R.

### 1934

Norrie. ====== : (Lander & Parkin, 1966) : (Lander, Parkin, Selfridge, smallest, 1967) : (Sastry, 1934, third smallest) ====== : (M.

### 1966

Parkin in 1966 when, through a direct computer search on a CDC 6600, they found a counterexample for .

A total of three primitive (that is, in which the summands do not all have a common factor) counterexamples are known: : (Lander & Parkin, 1966), : (Scher & Seidl, 1996), and : (Frye, 2004). In 1988, Noam Elkies published a method to construct an infinite series of counterexamples for the case.

### 1967

This solution is the only one with values of the variables below 1,000,000. == Generalizations == In 1967, L.

### 1988

A total of three primitive (that is, in which the summands do not all have a common factor) counterexamples are known: : (Lander & Parkin, 1966), : (Scher & Seidl, 1996), and : (Frye, 2004). In 1988, Noam Elkies published a method to construct an infinite series of counterexamples for the case.

Substituting into the identity and removing common factors gives the numerical example cited above. In 1988, Roger Frye found the smallest possible counterexample : for by a direct computer search using techniques suggested by Elkies.

### 1996

A total of three primitive (that is, in which the summands do not all have a common factor) counterexamples are known: : (Lander & Parkin, 1966), : (Scher & Seidl, 1996), and : (Frye, 2004). In 1988, Noam Elkies published a method to construct an infinite series of counterexamples for the case.

### 2002

As of 2002, there are no solutions for k=6 whose final term is ≤ 730000. ====== : (Plato's number 216) This is the case a = 1, b = 0 of Srinivasa Ramanujan's formula :(3a^2+5ab-5b^2)^3 + (4a^2-4ab+6b^2)^3 + (5a^2-5ab-3b^2)^3 = (6a^2-4ab+4b^2)^3 .

### 2004
