Abstract

There is a very rich literature on perfect powers or almost perfect powers in products of the form m(m + d) …: (m + (k − 1)d), where m, d are coprime positive integers and k ≥ 3. By a conjecture, such a product is never a perfect n-th power if k > 3, n ≥2 or k = 3, n > 2. In the classical case d = 1 the conjecture has been proved by Erdős and Selfridge [11]. The general case d ≥ 1 seems to be very hard, then there are only partial results; for survey papers on results obtained before 2006 we refer to Tijdeman [46]– [48], Shorey and Tijdeman [43, 44], Shorey [38]–[42]_and Győry [15, 16].
