Abstract: We describe several methods which permit one to search for big integral points on certain elliptic curves, i.e., for integral solutions (x, y) of certain Diophantine equations of the form $ {y^2} = {x^3} + ax + b\;(a,b \in {\mathbf{Z}})$ in a large range $ \vert x\vert,\vert y\vert \leqslant B$, in time polynomial in $ \log \log B$. We also give a number of individual examples and of parametric families of examples of specific elliptic curves having a relatively large integral point.
