comment Has the Collatz Conjecture been proven to be unprovable?
Actually, reading Conway's paper over again, he mentions the ZF axioms and extensions of it in the appendix. But I think my point is still valid. See Freeman Dyson's comment here: edge.org/q2005/q05_9.html Dyson never mentions any axioms.

comment Has the Collatz Conjecture been proven to be unprovable?
@HenningMakholm Your criticism can be used to refute most math papers. For instance, did Wiles explicitly mention the axioms he used to prove FLT in his paper? (I'm not sure, but I think you get what I'm saying.) Furthermore, John Conway believes that the Collatz Conjecture is unprovable and he never explicitly mentions axioms in his paper.

comment A problem with unitary matrices
Are there any other matrices besides diagonal matrices? That's really my question.

comment general local to global principle
@HenningMakholm, in the case of the Birch Swinnerton-Dyer Conjecture, that would be the rank of the elliptic curve. But I left the word "structure" as a soft terminology. That's why I made this a soft question.

@mvw, good catch. I made a correction.

My question was inspired by the Birch Swinnerton-Dyer conjecture.
