A proof of Vandiver’s conjecture would be a landmark in algebraic number theory, as many theorems hinge on the assumption that this conjecture is true. For example, it is known that if Vandiver’s conjecture holds, that the -rank of the ideal class group of equals the number of Bernoulli numbers divisible by (a remarkable strengthening of Herbrand’s theorem).
