After reading the explanations in the previous section, a skeptic asked the author what the difference is between the previous argument that the Collatz 3n+1 Conjecture is unprovable and the following argument that Fermat's Last Theorem is unprovable (which cannot possibly be valid, since Fermat's Last Theorem was proven by Wiles and Taylor in the last decade of the twentieth century [37]):
This systematic approach can be seen as testing series of conjectures or as a deliberate search for a pattern, which, indeed, is found and explained as a result of a successful input.
case where the two conjectures are identical, the verifying process is
Important as they are, these larger themes of transatlantic and modernist thought in Conjectures are but the most prominent of this study's achievements.
She then paired children and told them they needed to agree on which nets formed which polyhedra and on their conjectures about matching nets and polyhedra.
Graffiti has motivated many graph theoreticians, including its designer, to try to refute or prove the generated conjectures which are broadcast on an email list.
But according to Popper's epistemology, since a presupposition is only a conjecture or conclusion used to help spawn other conjectures, there is no reason why presuppositions cannot be debated and criticized.

His major contributions include several work on conjectures, such as Calabi conjecture, positive mass conjecture and existence of black holes, Smith conjecture, Hermitian Yang-Mills connection and stable vector bundles, Frankel conjecture and Mirror conjecture, as well as new methods and concepts of gradient estimates and Harnack inequalities, uniformization of complex manifolds, harmonic maps and rigidity, minimal submanifolds, and also open problems in geometry, covering harmonic functions with controlled growth, rank rigidity of nonpositively curved manifolds, Kahler-Einstein metrics and stability of manifolds and Mirror symmetry.
The 13 papers comprising the proceedings discuss such aspects as conjectures about p-adic groups and their noncommutative geometry, affinoids in Lubin-Tate surfaces with exponential full level two, an automorphic variant of a conjecture of Deligne, proof of the Aubert-Baum-Plymen-Solleveld conjecture for split classical groups, and the geometry and combinatorics of Springer fibers.
The starting point are the prominent conjectures of Farrell-Jones on the algebraic K- and L-theory of group rings, of Baum-Connes on the topological K-theory of reduced group C^*-algebras, and of Atiyah on the integrality of L^-Betti numbers.
These conjectures were later generalised to the corresponding Fuss-Catalan objects by Armstrong [Arm09, Conjecture 5.
Among specific topics are Harold Stark revealing where his conjectures came from, special values of L-functions at negative integers, introduction to elliptic curves, complex multiplication, root numbers, and Euler systems and Kolyvagin systems.
