Abstract
A necessary condition is obtained for a complete graph to have a decomposition as the line-disjoint union of three isomorphic strongly regular subgraphs. The condition is used to determine the number of non-trivial solutions of the equation x3+y3 = z3 in a finite field of characteristic p ≡ 2 mod 3.
