It has been pointed out to me that Go Yamashita has a preprint on his website, A proof of ABC conjecture after Mochizuki, that is not in the RIMS Preprints online archive.

  • Is that work intended for publication?
  • Does it present sketches of Mochizuki's main arguments or is it a detailed presentation of his works?

    $\begingroup$ The first question is too speculative. As for the 2nd, it is clearly a serious effort at a surveying a large amount of work in a more limited amount of space, and beyond saying that one probably gets into the realm of "opinion on a preprint" which isn't meant to be a focus for MO questions. Anyway, the footnote at the bottom of page 6 is interesting. $\endgroup$ – nfdc23 Aug 31 '17 at 13:30

    $\begingroup$ An aggressive footnote! How bizarre $\endgroup$ – Samantha Y Aug 31 '17 at 16:19

    $\begingroup$ I'm voting to close this on the basis of the Meta discussion on what is suitable for MO: meta.mathoverflow.net/questions/927/… . Is there a real focussed question here? $\endgroup$ – Lucia Aug 31 '17 at 17:58

    $\begingroup$ @Lucia, thank you for your comment. I'm not really asking about correctness. I'm just surprised that the preprint didn't appear on the RIMS Preprints server, so I wondered if it is actually intended for publication. The second question is maybe more focussed ad it's about defining the scope of a long paper since the abstract doesn't address it clearly in my opinion. $\endgroup$ – user75426 Aug 31 '17 at 19:40

    $\begingroup$ I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is a question that should be sent directly to the author of the paper being asked about. $\endgroup$ – Timothy Chow Aug 31 '17 at 20:09
