Blaise Pascal 8, No. Number Theory 94, No.The abc conjecture asserts, roughly speaking, that if a+b=c and a,b,c are coprime, then a,b,c cannot all be too smooth; in particular, the product of all the primes dividing a, b, or c has to exceed [math]c^{1-\varepsilon}[/math] for any fixed [math]\varepsilon \gt 0[/math] (if a,b,c are smooth).

Mochizuki has recently announced a proof of the ABC conjecture. It is far too early to judge its correctness, but it builds on many years of work by him. Dec 17,  · The ABC conjecture has (still) not been proved. Five years ago, Cathy O'Neil laid out a perfectly cogent case for why the (at that point recent) claims by Shinichi Mochizuki should not (yet) be regarded as constituting a proof of the ABC conjecture.

The abc conjecture (also known as the Oesterlé–Masser conjecture) is a conjecture in number theory, first proposed by Joseph Oesterlé and David Masser. It is stated in terms of three positive integers, a, b and c (hence the name) that are relatively prime and satisfy a + b = c.

The abc conjecture is a conjecture due to Oesterlé and Masser in It states that, for any infinitesimal, there exists a constant such that for any three relatively prime integers,, satisfying (1.
