A person who understands the proof of FLT completely is not a layperson. Maybe she was one, way back in the mists of time, before she embarked on a lifelong mission of studying huge swaths of modern mathematics and tackling the long series of 20th. AnnalsofMathematics, (), Pierre de Fermat Andrew John Wiles Modular elliptic curves and Fermat’s Last Theorem By AndrewJohnWiles* ForNada,Claire,KateandOliviaCited by:

In the latter category, Fermat’s Last Theorem (FLT) is neither the most ancient nor the latest example. In the late s, Thomas Hales solved Kepler’s Sphere-Packing Problem, posed in , and Grigori Perelman proved the Poincaré Conjecture, proposed in Author: Israel Kleiner. Andrew focused on his studies in line with his commitment to finding new knowledge that would help him solve the problem. At the age of 33, he felt that he had attained the needed knowledge to start working on the theorem once again ('Invitation To The Mathematics Of Fermat-Wiles', 1). He embarked on the research once again from to

Yves Hellegouarch's book, Invitation to the Mathematics of Fermat-Wiles, blends the two, but mainly focuses on the more advanced mathematics of FLT. The original text was in French; the English translation is provided by Leila Schneps, who is no stranger to the mathematics of FLT.

In the very last section of the book, the author discusses some new areas and concepts in mathematics that were generated by the solution of Fermat's last theorem. One of these concerns a new definition of the ring of p-adic integers, and arises when considering /5(3).

Overview Pythagorean origins. The Pythagorean equation, x 2 + y 2 = z 2, has an infinite number of positive integer solutions for x, y, and z; these solutions are known as Pythagorean triples (with the simplest example 3,4,5).

AroundFermat wrote in the margin of a book that the more general equation a n + b n = c n had no solutions in positive integers if n is an integer greater than tured by: Pierre de Fermat. Assuming only modest knowledge of undergraduate level math, Invitation to the Mathematics of Fermat-Wiles presents diverse concepts required to comprehend Wiles' extraordinary proof.

Furthermore, it places these concepts in their historical context. This. Fermat's Last Theorem, formulated instates that no three distinct positive integers a, b, and c can satisfy the equation + = if n is an integer greater than two (n > 2).

Over time, this simple assertion became one of the most famous unproved claims in mathematics. Between its publication and Andrew Wiles's eventual solution over years later, many mathematicians and amateurs.

The book begins with an overview of the complete proof, followed by several introductory chapters surveying the basic theory of elliptic curves, modular functions and curves, Galois cohomology, and finite group schemes.

Representation theory, which lies at the core of the proof, is dealt with in a chapter on automorphic representations and the. I know about some good books on the direction: First of all, the book Fermat's Last Theorem by Simon Sin is a pretty good book with the most basic needed materials.

Next, the books 13 lectures on Fermat's last theorem and Fermat's last theorem for amateurs by Ribenboim are pretty well and contain advanced elements. The last but not the least, the book Fermat's last theorem:a genetic. The Last Theorem is the most beautiful example of this.

Invitation to the Mathematics of Fermat—Wiles. I tried to fit it in with some previous broad conceptual understanding of some part of mathematics that would clarify the particular problem I was thinking about. What do you mean by a proof. Assuming only modest knowledge of undergraduate level math, Invitation to the Mathematics of Fermat-Wiles presents diverse concepts required to comprehend Wiles' extraordinary proof.

Furthermore, it places these concepts in their historical context. An Oxford professor who became obsessed with Fermat’s Last Theorem as a schoolboy has won the world’s top prize for mathematics for his “stunning proof” of the : Ian Sample.

The book concludes by looking both forward and backward, reflecting on the history of the problem, while placing Wiles'theorem into a more general Diophantine context suggesting future applications. Students and professional mathematicians alike will find this an indispensable resource.

Andrew Wiles on Solving Fermat Andrew Wiles devoted much of his career to proving Fermat's Last Theorem, a challenge that perplexed the best minds in mathematics for years.A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text.You could look at Invitation to the Mathematics of Fermat-Wiles by Yves Hellegouarch.

It's not an easy book, even though it says it is for undergraduates. It has everything you need to understand the ideas behind the proof, but not so that you could fill in all the details.
