Reducing the Erdős-Moser equation 1 n +2 n ++k n =(k+1) n modulo k and k 2 . (English) Zbl 1233.11038
An open conjecture of Erdős and Moser (from around 1950) is that the only solution of the Diophantine equation 1 n +2 n ++k n =(k+1) n is the trivial solution 1+2=3. Y. Gallot, P. Moree and W. Zudilin [Math. Comput. 80, No. 274, 1221–1237 (2011; Zbl 1231.11038)] showed that if there is a further solution then both k and n must exceed 10 10 9 . By reducing the equation modulo k 2 the authors find some new conditions that solutions (k,n) have to satisfy. The proofs use divisibility properties of power sums as well as Lerch’s relation between Fermat and Wilson quotients.
