Clemens conjectured that for any degree d > 0 a general quintic hypersurface of [P.sup.4] contains only finitely many smooth rational curves of degree d; the stronger form of the conjecture says that the same is true for singular rational curves, except rational degree 5 plane curves ([5], [6], [9], [19], [20], [21], [22], [30]).
