Arithmetic moduli of elliptic curves by
Nicholas M Katz(
Book
)
15 editions published between 1984 and 2016 in English and held by 457 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This work is a comprehensive treatment of recent developments in the study of elliptic curves and their moduli spaces. The arithmetic study of the moduli spaces began with Jacobi's "Fundamenta Nova" in 1829, and the modern theory was erected by EichlerShimura, Igusa, and DeligneRapoport. In the past decade mathematicians have made further substantial progress in the field. This book gives a complete account of that progress, including not only the work of the authors, but also that of Deligne and Drinfeld

Ces nombres qui n'existent pas by
Barry Mazur(
Book
)
4 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in French and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
L'auteur fait un parallèle entre l'atmosphère imaginative propre à la poésie et l'imagination à l'oeuvre en mathématiques. Il s'appuie sur l'exemple des nombres imaginaires (les nombres complexes, comme la racine carrée de nombres négatifs) pour nous faire vivre le voyage imaginaire qui a conduit les mathématiciens de la Renaissance italienne à envisager ces nombres

Fermat's last theorem by
Kenneth Ribet(
Visual
)
7 editions published between 1995 and 2008 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In June 1993 Andrew Wiles announced that he had proved Fermat's last theorem. The proof was finally completed in November 1994, when Wiles and Richard Taylor filled a technical gap that had arisen. In this lecture, Barry Mazur outlines the main ideas in this groundbreaking work. Mazur sets the context for the problem, then focuses on three concepts and the key role they play in Wiles' work: elliptoc curves, Galois representations, and modular forms. The lecture is preceded by an introduction by Mazur in March 1995, bringing the topic up to date
