Thanks.
So, as I said, the progress is slow (even when you know the theory, as I assume those guys do  a lot of computing power, and a dust particle of progress, compared with limits reached by other, unrelated, computational projects). This is HARD.

Something I have not seen, or missed, is clearly defined bounds for A,B,C,x,y, and z. The absolute floor value is 3. The ceiling could be anything, with exceptions, as long as it is positive.

My posit is that the theorem is more likely to be false than true, since there is no reason for it to be true or someone would have proved and collected $1M (which AFAIK is the highest mathematical prize) by now. The problem is that, to find a counterexample is astronomically HARD.
In statistics the probability of any given nonzero, lowprobabilityoccurrence can be made very high if you increase the trials enough and for a theoretical infinite trials, guaranteed/certain. But, then again what do I know. ETA: it’s a bit like theorizing that there are no purple cars in the world. Google says there are about 1M(thousands) cars in the world. I bet you have never seen a purple one. Well, Google is all knowing all wise (after Wikipedia of course). Last fiddled with by a1call on 20221020 at 21:50

But Witold Jarnicki and David Konerding already did that: they wrote a C++ program that, in parallel across thousands of machines, searched for A,B up to 200,000 and x,y up to 5,000, but found no counterexamples. So I don't think it is worthwhile to continue on that path." Even this is a painfully slow program.

Because there is generally always a resolution. Factor or no factor.
How many iterations have been thrown at Beal? Over a trillion, more, and no counterexample. Despite being a somewhat interesting problem, it is not something I want to mess with.

Today passed his tests.. Do you think that it is worth 1 million bucks? The first few digits of C is shown, it is a quite large number. (I have really entered A,X,B,Y,C,Z; there was no dirty site hacking).
