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.

Numerology is to Mathematics as Astrology is to Astronomy, as Snake Oil is to Actual Medicine.
Please, leave the numerology nonsense in the more 'magical' spooky threads.
To the OP; cool find. This proof will show some fun changes in the next couple years.
Well done!

Tell me, did Harry Potter think up his own lines... or did JK Rowling?

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.
