Beyond Fermat's Last Theorem

Activity: Talk or presentationInvited talkResearch


Diophantine equations are polynomial equations in two or more
variables, for which one seeks integer or rational solutions. A famous
example is the Fermat equation, solved in 1995 by Andrew Wiles with his
celebrated proof of the Taniyama-Shimura conjecture (also called the
modularity conjecture).

In this talk, we explore how combinations of classical and modern
(post-Wiles) approaches prove to be fruitful in solving families of
Diophantine equations. We will explore plenty of explicit examples to
guide us through various methodologies.
