# Open Diophantine problems

@inproceedings{Waldschmidt2001OpenDP, title={Open Diophantine problems}, author={Michel Waldschmidt}, year={2001} }

Diophantine Analysis is a very active domain of mathemat- ical research where one finds more conjectures than results. We collect here a number of open questions concerning Diophantine equations (including Pillai's Conjectures), Diophantine approximation (featuring the abc Conjecture) and transcendental number theory (with, for instance, Schanuel's Conjecture). Some questions related to Mahler's measure and Weil absolute logarithmic height are then considered (e.g., Lehmer's Problem). We also… Expand

Family of Diophantine equations in a parameter t, whose integral solutions for t = 1, 2, 3,… exhibit a certain arythmia in terms of their size, have fascinated mathematicians for centuries, and this phenomenon (the size of smallest integral solution varying wildly with the parameter-value) is surprising, even when the equations are perfectly “decidable”.
