The ABC Theorem!?!?!?


Apparently Szpiro has a proof of at least certain cases of the ABC conjecture. (He was able to find an explicit constant K(epsilon) for certain values of epsilon.) His bound is good enough to prove Fermat’s Last Theorem for n>81 (which is presumably good enough to combine with pre-Wiles results for a full proof).

And the proof is actually supposed to be understandable to a person like me.

About Simon

Hi. I'm Simon Rubinstein-Salzedo. I'm a mathematics postdoc at Dartmouth College. I'm also a musician; I play piano and cello, and I also sometimes compose music and study musicology. I also like to play chess and write calligraphy. This blog is a catalogue of some of my thoughts. I write them down so that I understand them better. But sometimes other people find them interesting as well, so I happily share them with my small corner of the world.
