Products of factorials which are powers
Extending earlier research of Erdős and Graham, we consider the problem of products of factorials yielding perfect powers. On the one hand, we describe how the representability of $\ell$th powers behaves when the number of factorials is smaller than, equal to or larger than $\ell$, respectively. On the other hand, we investigate for which fixed $n=b_1$ it is possible to find integers $b_2,\dots,b_k$ at most $b_1$ (obeying certain conditions) such that $b_1!\cdots b_k!$ is a perfect power. Here we distinguish the cases where the factorials may be repeated or are distinct.
