TITLE: On the ABC Conjecture, part IV
ABSTRACT: S. Mochizuki has recently claimed to have prove the ABC Conjecture. This is a very strong conjecture, with numerous consequences in number theory. If correct, it would be the most important result in mathematics since the proof of the Poincaré Conjecture. In this series of talks we will motivate, state, give equivalent statements, prove/discuss consequences and study related problems to the ABC Conjecture.
