By Paulo Ribenboim

Fermat's challenge, additionally ealled Fermat's final theorem, has attraeted the eye of mathematieians excess of 3 eenturies. Many smart equipment were devised to attaek the matter, and plenty of appealing theories were ereated with the purpose of proving the concept. but, regardless of the entire makes an attempt, the query is still unanswered. The topie is gifted within the kind of leetures, the place I survey the most traces of labor at the challenge. within the first leetures, there's a very short deseription of the early heritage, in addition to a seleetion of some of the extra consultant reeent effects. within the leetures whieh persist with, I learn in sue eession the most theories eonneeted with the matter. The final lee tu res are approximately analogues to Fermat's theorem. a few of these leetures have been aetually given, in a shorter model, on the Institut Henri Poineare, in Paris, in addition to at Queen's college, in 1977. I endeavoured to produee a textual content, readable by way of mathematieians commonly, and never purely by means of speeialists in quantity conception. although, because of a trouble in dimension, i'm conscious that eertain issues will seem sketehy. one other e-book on Fermat's theorem, now in instruction, will eontain a eonsiderable quantity of the teehnieal advancements passed over the following. it's going to serve those that desire to study those concerns intensive and, i'm hoping, it's going to make clear and eomplement the current volume.
