Fermat's Last Theorem for Amateurs, Hardback Book

Fermat's Last Theorem for Amateurs Hardback

Description

In 1995, Andrew Wiles completed a proof of Fermat's Last Theorem.

Although this was certainly a great mathematical feat, one shouldn't dismiss earlier attempts made by mathematicians and clever amateurs to solve the problem.

In this book, aimed at amateurs curious about the history of the subject, the author restricts his attention exclusively to elementary methods that have produced rich results.
