Belgian chocolate is as easy as abc.

The Belgian chocolate problem asks for the range of a process parameter for which simultaneous stabilization of three processes by a rational controller is possible. In this talk I introduce a new algebraic method that produces solutions with larger process parameters than standard optimization techniques yield. These solutions turn out to be related to the famous abc theorem on polynomials.
