Abstract:

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 ground-breaking 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.
