Title: Thue inequalities
Abstract of Talk
Let $F(X,Y)\in \mathbb Z[X,Y] $ be an irreducible binary form of degree $\geq 3$ and $m$ a given positive integer. In a most original paper, Thue (1909) showed that an equation of the form $$F(x,y)=m$$ has only finitely many solutions. Since then several work has been done on the above equation and also on the inequality $$|F(x,y)| \leq m.$$ In this talk we shall mention some conjectures regarding the Thue inequality and some recent progress.
