The study of Diophantine equations has a long and rich history, getting its impetus with the advent of Baker's theory of linear forms in logarithms, in the 1960's. T. N. Shorey's contribution to Diophantine equations, based on Baker's theory, is widely acclaimed. An international conference was held at the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Mumbai from December 16-20 2005, in his honor. This volume has evolved out of the papers contributed by several participants and non-participants of the conference. These articles reflect the various aspects of exponential Diophantine equations from experts in the field.
