Circles disturbed the interplay of mathematics and narrative
by
Apostolos K Doxiadēs(
)
9 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 1,219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Circles Disturbed brings together important thinkers in mathematics, history, and philosophy to explore the relationship between mathematics and narrative. The book's title recalls the last words of the great Greek mathematician Archimedes before he was slain by a Roman soldier"Don't disturb my circles"Words that seem to refer to two radically different concerns: that of the practical person living in the concrete world of reality, and that of the theoretician lost in a world of abstraction

Fermat's last theorem
by
Barry Mazur(
Visual
)
5 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 64 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: elliptic curves, Galois representations, and modular forms. The lecture is preceded by an introduction by Mazur in March 1995, bringing the topic up to date
