Dear All

I should like to state the following conjecture in number theory of prime numbers that depends more on feelings, without knowing if it is true or false, new or old

I will be glad if one of each two conjectures of mine stay as a challenge, and that only will give a good reason to prove them.

The Conjecture

"The ratio (of the sum (of two distinct non zero integers relatively prime to each other) of alike power of odd prime number that doesn't divide any of the integers) to their sum is equal to a positive integer which has all its prime factors exponents as a power of two to a natural number"

In symbols,

Let, (p) is odd prime number, and (x and y) are two none zero distinct coprime integers in their absolute value, where also (x and y) are not a multiple of (p),

If, n = (x^p + y^p) / (x + y),

then, all prime factor exponents of (n), are of the form of (2^k), that is a power of two)

I will be very gratfull for any counter example

Thanking you all

It is unclear what you mean by "prime factor exponents". If you are

saying that

if a prime q divides n, then it must do so to an even power, then this

is false.

Or do you allow k = 0? You would then be saying that if q^s | n for

prime q, then

s is never 3,5,6,7,9,10,11, .......

This is almost certainly true on probabilistic grounds, and is not a

new conjecture.

You have no right to claim it as your own.

And the "power of 2" is a red herring. The conjecture would be

better stated

that if q^s | n, then s = 1 or 2 only. And I expect that s=2

will be VERY

rare. (if it ever occurs) Note that 23^2 does divide 3^11 -

2^11. I know of no

numerical examples where q^2 divides n as you have defined it. Nor

are any

examples known where q^2 | 2^p + 1.

This is a homogeneous form of the well-known conjecture that the

Mersenne

numbers and their "plus side" companions to M_p are always

squarefree.

Indeed, it seems even less likely that q^3 will ever divide n

than q^2 will divide a

Mersenne number.

Clearly, if you remove the restriction that p is prime, then there are

infinitely

many counter-examples.

That doesn't contradicts my conjecture

Note that, I'm not talking about a pair of (x,y)=(1,2)

Mersenne number is only a single case of my new conjecture hopefully

But, I didn't remove the restriction

It's not true on any grounds.

For example, let p=3, x=17, y=53.

Then (x^p+y^p)/(x+y) equals 13^3.

However Karzeddin's has previously stated some similar conjectures

which appear to be correct.

For example, here is a version of one of his conjectures (edited):

If n,x,y are positive integers with n>2, then the prime factorization

of x^n+y^n includes at least one prime factor with exponent at most 2.

>You have no right to claim it as your own.

I don't see why "he has no right to claim it as his own."

It's a simple conjecture, stronger than FLT and weaker than the ABC

conjecture. It's easily testable and very appealing. So far, no

reference has been noted as having an essentially similar conjecture.

To my view, the conjecture is Karzeddin's for now, at least in

sci.math.

>And the "power of 2" is a red herring. The conjecture would be

>better stated

>that if q^s | n, then s = 1 or 2 only.

Yes, I agree -- powers of 2 mean nothing here. The real issue is

whether or not any of the prime power exponents can exceed 2.

>And I expect that s=2

>will be VERY

>rare. (if it ever occurs) Note that 23^2 does divide 3^11 -

Well, your expectation as stated above is wrong.

For example, let p=3, x=56, y=65.

Then (x^p+y^p)/(x+y) equals 61^2.

>Nor are any

>examples known where q^2 | 2^p + 1.

>

Um, sorry -- the statement you made above is very fuzzy. To say that

Karzeddin's conjecture is "a homogeneous form" of some well known

conjecture relating to the factorization of Mersenne numbers is

imprecise to the point of being misleading. While the conjectures

might be similar in spirit, they are obviously not equivalent.

> Indeed, it seems even less likely that q^3 will ever divide n

>than q^2 will divide a

>Mersenne number.

Your statement above is invalidated by the same counterexample as

mentioned earlier, namely: p=3, x=17, y=53.

>Clearly, if you remove the restriction that p is prime, then there are

>infinitely

>many counter-examples.

Well, we are talking about an invalidated conjecture, so let's focus

instead on a correct version. How about the one previously mentioned.

Let me state it again ...

One of Karzeddin's conjectures (edited by quasi):

If n,x,y are positive integers with n>2, then the prime factorization

of x^n+y^n includes at least one prime factor with exponent at most 2.

Ha! these are exactly the numbers that turn up in the counterexample

I gave to another problem in another thread.

If u(x) = x^2 + 4 x - 8 and f(x) = x^3 + 1,

then u^2 = q f - r,

where q(x) = x + 8 and r(x) = 65 x - 56.

In the notation of the other thread, a / b = 56 / 65,

and f(a/b) = (56/65)^3 + 1 = (56^3 + 65^3) / 65^3

= (11^2) (61^2) / 65^3 is not a square in the rationals.

I should like to thank you alot quasi for a very nice counter example, as this will help me alot to state it in a better version

I think, you are developing my previous conjecture to make (k) as finite as equal to (1 or 2), only, and this is a very important step of yours

I really don't mind if its not mine, as now it has been pointed out and developed by quasi, and I will not hesitate a second to mention its original reference if I KNOW.

The important issue is to prove it as new version of quasi or older one of mine, and hence make FLT available to school students only, and then will be a vectory

Dear All

As quasi found a very fast counter example to my conjecture, I was inspired by quasi to restate my previous conjecture in a better version based on quasi's notes

The Conjecture

"The ratio (of the sum (of two distinct non zero integers relatively prime to each other) of alike power of odd prime number that doesn't divide any of the integers) to their sum is equal to odd positive integer which has one "at most" of its prime factors exponents as not equal to one or two "

In symbols,

Let, (p) is odd prime number, and (x and y) are two none zero distinct coprime integers in their absolute value, where also (x and y) are not a multiple of (p),

If, n = (x^p + y^p) / (x + y),

then, one "at most" of prime factor exponents of the odd integer (n), is not equal to one or two.

I will be very gratfull for any counter example

If this conjecture comes true, you may call it as

"quasi-karzeddin" conjecture

May 26, 2006, 6:01:51 PM5/26/06

to

No, it's essentially your conjecture. All I did was make a very minor

modification and then edit the statement slightly to improve the

wording.

I'm not so clear about that either but, apparently, the truth of one

of the versions of the ABC conjecture would imply the truth of yours

(the one I stated above).

Yes, there might be a reference with essentially the same conjecture

-- maybe, maybe not.

>The important issue is to prove it as new version of quasi or older one of mine, and hence make FLT available to school students only, and then will be a vectory

Yes, but you have to realize, just because you can discover a property

that appears to always be true, that doesn't mean that an elementary

proof is feasible.

You keep asking for a proof or a counterexample, but the reality is

that if the conjecture is true, today's math is probably not powerful

enough to prove it.

Besides stating the conjecture, you have provided no reason as to why

the conjecture should be true. You have not suggested any method of

attacking the problem. Why do you think others should suddenly devote

their energy to this problem when there's no real reason to believe

its truth and even if one does believe it, the task of proving it is

most likely hopeless.

May 26, 2006, 6:19:47 PM5/26/06

No, it's not my conjecture.

Also, it's not true.

Counterexample:

Let p=3, x=701, y=971

Then (x^p+y^p)/(x+y) = (7^3)*(13^3)

This conjecture is not the same as the one I stated in my earlier

reply in this thread. That one might actually be true.
