Title: Product of factorials being a factorial
Abstract of Talk
A conjecture of Hickerson states that 16! is the largest factorial that can be written as a product of factorials. We shall confirm it under Baker's explicit abc conjecture. We shall also give some unconditional results. This is a joint work with Saranya Nair.
