Abstract

The title alludes to a similar title of the paper [3] by Grunewald and Segal, in which it is shown how to solve a quadratic equation in integers. This latter procedure seems to be quite difficult, and the algorithm outlined in [3] is rather involved, although it is completely effective in the logical sense.
