Explicit abc-conjecture and its applications

Authors: Chi Chim Kwok ; Saranya G. Nair ; T. N. Shorey

    We state well-known abc-conjecture of Masser-Oesterlé and its explicit version, popularly known as the explicit abc-conjecture, due to Baker. Laishram and Shorey derived from the explicit abc-conjecture that (1.1) implies that $c < N^{1.75}$. We give a survey on improvements of this result and its consequences. Finally we prove that $c < N^{1.7}$ and apply this estimate on an equation related to a conjecture of Hickerson that a factorial is not a product of factorials non-trivially.
