Number field fragments and Fermat’s last theorem
Apr 6, 2018Simons Collaboration Seminar (open to all) by Bjorn Poonen (MIT)
3:304:30pm in MIT room 6120We describe an attempt (unsuccessful so far) to give a new proof of Fermat’s last theorem, involving geometry of numbers and the isotypic components of a Galois number field viewed as a representation of its Galois group.
