Rado's criterion over higher powers.

In Ramsey theory, Schur's theorem states that however one finitely colours the positive integers, there is always a solution to the equation x+y = z in which each variable receives the same colour. Rado completely characterised which linear equations possess this property and which do not. We discuss analogues of these results for certain non-linear Diophantine equations.
