Proof of a determinant evaluation conjectured by Bombieri, Hunt and van der Poorten

Abstract. A determinant evaluation is proven, a special case of which establishes a conjecture of Bombieri, Hunt, and van der Poorten (Experimental Math. 4 (1995), 87-96) that arose in the study of Thue's method of approximating algebraic numbers.
