Description

Let *X* be a semi-stable arithmetic surface of genus at least two and *$\omega$* the relative dualizing sheaf of *X*, equipped with the Arakelov metric. Parshin and Moret-Bailly have conjectured an upper bound for the arithmetic self-intersection of $*\omega*$. They proved that a weak form of the *abc* conjecture follows from this inequality. We shall discuss a way of making their conjecture more precise in order that it implies the full *abc* conjecture (a proof of which has been announced by Mochizuki).
