# An Analytic Proof of Bugeaud-Mignotte Theorem Jamel Ghanouchi

ABSTRACT

The Bugeaud-Mignotte theorem concerns the Diophantine equation , when X = 10. It includes the fact that any integer greater than 2 and with all digits equal to 1 in base ten cannot be a pure power. It means that does not exist Y an integer strictly greater than 1 and q an integer strictly greater than 1 for which Yq is a number with all digits equal to 1 in base ten.

INTRODUCTION

11, 111, 1111 in base ten are not pure powers, we can easily verify it, but is it true for a number of n digits equal 1 in base ten, for all n. This study is an answer to this question. A number with n digits equal to 1 (111…1) in base ten is equal to a number with n digits equal to 9 (999…9) in base ten divided by 9, which means , the theorem stipulates that , . This research proposes an original and analytic proof of this theorem called Bugeaud and Mignotte theorem (Bugeaud and Mignotte, 1999).

THE PROOF

Let Bugeaud-Mignotte equation: Then with j2 = -1 10n-9Yq = 1 = 10n+j(9jYq) We pose: 10n = x, 9jYq = y, u = 1, z = 9jYq10n

Lemma 1 (1) (2)

Proof of Lemma 1 And: We pose: until infinty.

Lemma 2

 The expression of the sequences is Proof of Lemma 2

 For I = 2, , it is verified. We suppose the expressions true for I But: Lemma 3

xi-jyi = x-jy

Lemma 4

The lemmas 1, 2, 3 imply that jy-x = 0

Proof of Lemma 4 We pose: We pose:  And: And: If we make the hypothesis that  And:  But: The hypothesis is false and In all cases   is convergent, then the general term of the series tends to zero And it is impossible: the existence of Y and q is impossible!

CONCLUSION

Bugeaud-Mignotte equation has effectively no solution, and an analytic proof exists. The generalization is is it possible? It seems that there are only three solutions: REFERENCES
