The Beal Prize was funded by Andrew Beal, a prominent banker who is also a mathematics enthusiast. An AMS-appointed committee will award this prize for either a proof of, or a counterexample to, the Beal Conjecture published in a refereed and respected mathematics publication. The prize money – currently US$1,000,000 – is being held in trust by the AMS until it is awarded.

Beal Prize Conjecture

If Ax + By = Cz , where A, B, C, x, y and z are positive integers and x, y and z are all greater than 2, then A, B and C must have a common prime factor.

[by way of example, 33 + 63 = 35, but the numbers that are the bases have a common factor of 3, so the equation does not disprove the theorem; it is not a counterexample.]

Actually it's A^x + B^y = C^z, written without superscript.

Wonder if I could pretend I was good in math.

Nice prize for being a nerd.
