y^2-x^2=n
z^2-x^2=m
n \neq m \neq 0
n,m squarefree
Can the number of solutions in Z be unbounded as n,m vary?
I suppose if the squarefree restriction is dropped the answer is yes via elliptic curves.
Any heuristics?
Probably the question is an open problem.
A possible relaxation might be replacing n,m with c_1 n, c_2 m with small c_1,c_2.
Thanks.
