ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The aim of this thesis is to study some methods used in solving exponential Diophan- tine equations. There is no generic method or algorithm that can be used in solving all Diophantine equations. The main focus for our study will be solving the exponential Dio- phantine equations using the modular approach and the linear forms in two logarithms approach.

AFRIKAANSE OPSOMMING: Die doel van hierdie tesis is om sommige metodes te bestudeer om sekere Diophantiese vergelykings op te los. Daar is geen metode wat alle Diophantiese vergelykings kan oplos nie. Die fokus van os studie is hoofsaaklik om eksponensiele Diophantiese vergelykings op te los met die modul^ere metode en met die metode van line^ere vorms in twee logaritmes.
