We determine the set of primitive integral solutions to the generalised Fermat equation x2 + y3 = z15. As expected, the only solutions are the trivial ones with xyz = 0 and the non-trivial one (x, y, z) = (± 3, −2, 1). 


. We prove if A x + B y = C z , where A , B , C , x , y and z are positive integers, x , y and z are all greater than 2, then A , B and C must have a common prime factor. In this way, we demonstrate

The generalized Fermat equation with exponents 2, 3, $n$

We study the generalized Fermat equation $x^{2}+y^{3}=z^{p}$ , to be solved in coprime integers, where $p\geqslant 7$ is prime. Modularity and level-lowering techniques reduce the problem to the

On ternary Diophantine equations of signature(p,p,2)over number fields

Let $K$ be a totally real number field with narrow class number one and $O_K$ be its ring of integers. We prove that there is a constant $B_K$ depending only on $K$ such that for any prime exponent

A Simple and General Proof of Beal’s Conjecture (I)

Using the same method that we used in [1] to prove Fermat’s Last Theorem in a simpler and truly marvellous way, we demonstrate that Beal’s Conjecture yields—in the simplest imaginable manner, to our

The Complexity of Mathematics

In mathematics, the Riemann hypothesis is a conjecture that the Riemann zeta function has its zeros only at the negative even integers and complex numbers with real part 1/2. Many consider it to be

The Complexity of Mathematics

The strong Goldbach’s conjecture states that every even integer greater than 2 can be written as the sum of two primes. The conjecture that all odd numbers greater than 7 are the sum of three odd

The Complexity of Number Theory

It is shown that if the weak Goldbach's conjecture is true, then the problem PRIMES is not in NSPACE(S(n)) for all S(n) = o(log n), then the Riemann hypothesis is true.

The Complexity of Number Theory

The Goldbach’s conjecture has been described as the most difficult problem in the history of Mathematics. This conjecture states that every even integer greater than 2 can be written as the sum of two

On Upper Bounds with $ABC=2^m p^n$ and $ABC= 2^m p^n q^r$ with $p$ and $q$ as Mersenne or Fermat Primes.

Per the $ABC$ conjecture, for every $\varepsilon > 0$, there exist finitely many triples $\{A, B, C\}$, satisfying $A + B = C, gcd(A,B) = 1, B > A \geq 1$, such that $C > rad(ABC)^{1 + \varepsilon}$,

Proof of the Tijdeman-Zagier Conjecture via Slope Irrationality and Term Coprimality

The Tijdeman-Zagier conjecture states no integer solution exists for AX + BY = CZ with positive integer bases and integer exponents greater than 2 unless gcd(A,B,C) > 1. Any set of values that



Partial descent on hyperelliptic curves and the generalized Fermat equation x3+y4+z5=0

Let C: y2=f(x) be a hyperelliptic curve defined over ℚ. Let K be a number field and suppose f factors over K as a product of irreducible polynomials f=f1 f2 … fr. We shall define a ‘Selmer set’

Primitive Integral Solutions to x 2 + y 3 = z 10

We classify primitive integer solutions to x^2 + y^3 = z^10. The technique is to combine modular methods at the prime 5, number field enumeration techniques in place of modular methods at the prime

Twists of X(7) and primitive solutions to x^2+y^3=z^7

We find the primitive integer solutions to x^2+y^3=z^7. A nonabelian descent argument involving the simple group of order 168 reduces the problem to the determination of the set of rational points on

Explicit descent for Jacobians of cyclic coevers of the projective line.

We develop a general method for bounding Mordell-Weil ranks of Jacobians of arbitrary curves of the form y p = f(x). As an example, we compute the Mordell-Weil ranks over Q and Q( p 3) for a

This paper gives a fairly detailed description of an algorithm that computes (the size of) the 2-Selmer group of the Jacobian of a hyperellitptic curve over Q. The curve is assumed to have even genus

Explicit Chabauty over number fields

Let C be a smooth projective absolutely irreducible curve of genus g ≥ 2 over a number field K of degree d, and denote its Jacobian by J . Denote the Mordell–Weil rank of J(K) by r. We give an

Finding rational points on bielliptic genus 2 curves

Abstract:We discuss a technique for trying to find all rational points on curves of the form Y2=f3X6+f2X4+f1X2+f0, where the sextic has nonzero discriminant. This is a bielliptic curve of genus 2.

The Mordell-Weil sieve : proving non-existence of rational points on curves

We discuss the Mordell–Weil sieve as a general technique for proving results concerning rational points on a given curve. In the special case of curves of genus 2, we describe quite explicitly how

Descent on superelliptic curves

This paper defines a set which encapsulates information about local solubility of a particular collection of covers of a curve defined by an equation of the form y^q=f(x) and shows how to compute this set.
