# Mathematician claims proof for the ABC conjecture of prime numbers

Hi all I did a search and nothing came up and posted it in this forum accordingly - mods please remove if you deem it necessary to do so.

Calling all Sheldon Coopers.........this Japanese brainiac has sent shockwaves through the underworld of geek-dom, apparently proving a theory formulated in 1985 involving the concept of square-free numbers, or numbers that cannot be divided by the square of any number.

A Japanese mathematician claims to have the proof for the ABC conjecture, a statement about the relationship between prime numbers that has been called the most important unsolved problem in number theory. If Shinichi Mochizuki's 500-page proof stands up to scrutiny, mathematicians say it will represent one of the most astounding achievements of mathematics of the twenty-first century. The proof will also have ramifications all over mathematics, and even in the real-world field of data encryption.

The ABC conjecture makes a statement about pairs of numbers that have no prime factors in common, Peterson explained. If A and B are two such numbers and C is their sum, the ABC conjecture holds that the square-free part of the product A x B x C, denoted by sqp(ABC), divided by C is always greater than 0.

Meanwhile, sqp(ABC) raised to any power greater than 1 and divided by C is always greater than 1. This conjecture may seem esoteric, but for mathematicians, it's deep and ubiquitous. "The ABC conjecture is amazingly simple compared to the deep questions in number theory," Andrew Granville of the University of Georgia in Athens was quoted as saying in the MAA article. "This strange conjecture turns out to be equivalent to all the main problems. It's at the center of everything that's been going on." The conjecture has also been described as a sort of grand unified theory of whole numbers, in that the proofs of many other important theorems follow immediately from it.

For example, Fermat's famous Last Theorem (which states that an+bn=cn has no integer solutions if n>2) follows as a direct consequence of the ABC conjecture.

Please tell me that 2+2 still = 4, because I'm starting to freak out here

Numerology is to Mathematics as Astrology is to Astronomy, as Snake Oil is to Actual Medicine.

To the OP; cool find. This proof will show some fun changes in the next couple years.
Well done!

Context is Mathematics...."Prime Numbers" From Ancient Time...To Present!

(Prime Numbers=153) A=1 B=2 C=3... "Natural Order" (The Golden Ratio=153)

JESUS GAVE THE ANSWER 2,000 YEARS AGO...John 21:11 The ( 153 ) Fish Count.

"1.618 is a mathematical formula that is found in many things, thus proving the universe was created by Intelligent Design, that is, God. "

Numbers - Structure - Design - Purpose......

I didn't think you would understand the analogy...

You probably don't see the irony in what you just said either.

You're entirely off topic.
The topic is Proof for the ABC conjecture of prime numbers.
The ABC conjecture is simply the ABC conjecture.

What you are doing is looking at a subject similar to "The Language of Shakespeare", and arbitrarily spamming videos and utter nonsense magical thinking sewer sludge because you think you heard someone using some 'language' while producing that sewer sludge.

Yes, math was used in the Proof for the ABC conjecture of prime numbers, and it involves prime numbers to some extent, but, unless you have something to say regarding the actual proof for the ABC conjecture of prime numbers instead of component parts of the description of what it is that you obvious don't understand, please, step away from the keyboard.

The subject is not Math, or prime numbers, or any of your magical mystical rainbow unicorn nonsense.
The subject is Proof for the ABC conjecture of prime numbers.
Thus, if you have anything to say about the ABC Conjecture itself that is relevant, instead of preaching whatever religion it is you're trying to flop around the room for everyone to see, that would be nice.

If I'm interpreting this correctly - this could potentially allow one to predict prime numbers, or form the cornerstone of a formula capable of doing so. That would turn mathematics on its head. Predicting Prime Numbers is the holy grail of mathematics. It would be like a grand unified theory in physics.

As for numerology ... eh. I look at it like soothsaying. You can read a lot into things, and extrapolate meaning out of it. If it helps you find peace and fulfillment in life - I'm not going to shun you for it. Though don't expect me to sit and not challenge your faith in any system. Faith, unchallenged, is simply a personal fad.

What on earth did this thread have to do with Jesus or Genesis???

Why so?
Proving the conjecture only means it's no longer a conjecture but simply true "for real". And as a direct consequence, many other conjectures can finally rest in peace, after serving us well.

If you watched those video's, How can you deny the connection...Number's Don't Lie. Be Honest and Unbiased!

Then you can see the connection!

Ahh you got me thinking here... Good thought on this. Please elaborate on the "prediction" part (yes you did state potentially)... I am curious and want to make sure I am following you..

Thanks..
