Abstract: A computer technique for finding integer solutions of

$\displaystyle {x^3} + D{y^3} = 1$

is described, and a table of all integer solutions of this equation for all positive $ D \leqslant 50000$ is presented. Some theoretic results which describe certain values of D for which the equation has no nontrivial solution are also given.
