Let R be a commutative ring with a unit element, F(x) a homogeneous polynomial of degree n in t indeterminates x1, x2, ..., xt with coefficients in R. Let I denote the subring of the coefficients of F(x) in R; that is, the smallest ring containing all of them. We consider the existence of solutions of the diophantine equation F(x) = z^M in R or in I. Here z is an indeterminate and m is a given positive integer.
