Let C: y(2)=f(x) be a hyperelliptic curve defined over Q. Let K be a number field and suppose f factors over K as a product of irreducible polynomials f=f(1) f(2) ... f(r). We shall define a 'Selmer set' corresponding to this factorization with the property that if it is empty, then C(Q)=empty set. We shall demonstrate the effectiveness of our new method by solving the generalized Fermat equation with signature (3, 4, 5), which is unassailable via the previously existing methods.
