Abstract  For any $i,j \ge 0$ with $i+j =1$, let bad$(i,j)$ denote the set of points $(x,y) \in R^2$ for which $ \max \{\qx\^{1/i}, \qy\^{1/j} \} > c/q $ for all $ q \in N $. Here $c = c(x,y)$ is a positive constant. Our main result implies that any finite intersection of such sets has full dimension. This settles a conjecture of Wolfgang M. Schmidt in the theory of simultaneous Diophantine approximation.
