Diophantine triples taking values in recurrence sequences have recently been studied quite a lot. In particular the question was raised whether or not there are finitely many Diophantine triples in the Tribonacci sequence. We answer this question here in the affirmative. We prove that there are only finitely many triples of integers 1 ≤ u < v < w such that uv + 1, uw + 1, vw + 1 are Tribonacci numbers. The proof depends on the Subspace theorem.
Mathematica Slovaca, the oldest and best mathematical journal in Slovakia, was founded in 1951 at the Mathematical Institute of the Slovak Academy of Science, Bratislava. It covers practically all mathematical areas. As a respectful international mathematical journal, it publishes only highly nontrivial original articles with complete proofs by assuring a high quality reviewing process.
