Find the distance between the skew lines
r 1 ( t ) = ( 1 ; 1 ; 0 ) + ( 1 , 6 , 2 ) t and r 2 ( s ) = ( 1 , 5 , 2 ) + ( 2 , 15 , 6 ) s.

We really need to find the distance between parallel planes.
any two skew lines lie on parallel planes, the normal direction of those planes is orthogonal to both lines thus use cross product to find it.
| i j k 1 6 2 2 15 6 | =< 6 , 2 , 3 >
choosing s = 0 from the second line we find the point (1, 5, 2) andusing this point with the normal direction of the plane we find theequation of its plane.
6(x-1)-2(y-5)+3(z-2)=0
6x-2y+3z-2=0
now choosing the point where t = 0 on the first line we have the point (1, 1, 0)
from the equation for the distance from a point to a plane.
D = | a x 1 + b y 1 + c z 1 + d | a 2 + b 2 + c 2
where a, b, c, and d are 6, -2, 3, and -2 respectively (from theplane equation) and ( x 1 , y 1 , z 1 ) = ( 1 , 1 , 0 ) (from the point)
D = | ( 6 ) ( 1 ) + ( 2 ) ( 1 ) + ( 3 ) ( 0 ) + ( 2 ) | 6 2 + 2 2 + 3 2 = 2 49 = 2 7

We have F ( x , y ) Z [ X , Y ] a positive definite binary form of degree 3. I have to prove, without using lower bounds on linear forms in logarithms (we were working with Baker's theorems), that for each positive integer m the equation F ( x , y ) = m has only finitely many solutions in x , y Z . I also have to describe a method to find these.
We know that the coefficient of X d of F is positive, and that all zeros of F ( X , 1 ) are in C R . We also know the discriminant of F is negative.
I have trouble finding this out by myself. I also looked up some number theory books, but most literature is about binary quadratic forms, not the binary form I have to prove this for. Hope someone can help me!
