Assuming only modest knowledge of undergraduate level math, Invitation to the Mathematics of Fermat-Wiles presents diverse concepts required to comprehend Wiles' extraordinary proof. Furthermore, it places these concepts in their historical context. This book can be used in introduction to mathematics theories courses and in special topics courses on Fermat's last theorem. It contains themes suitable for development by students as an introduction to personal research as well as numerous exercises and problems. However, the book will also appeal to the inquiring and mathematically informed reader intrigued by the unraveling of this fascinating puzzle. Rigorously presents the concepts required to understand Wiles' proof, assuming only modest undergraduate level math Sets the math in its historical context Contains several themes that could be further developed by student research and numerous exercises and problems Written by Yves Hellegouarch, who himself made an important contribution to the proof of Fermat's last theorem

Two of science fiction’s most renowned writers join forces for a storytelling sensation. The historic collaboration between Frederik Pohl and his fellow founding father of the genre, Arthur C. Clarke, is both a momentous literary event and a fittingly grand farewell from the late, great visionary author of 2001: A Space Odyssey. The Last Theorem is a story of one man’s mathematical obsession, and a celebration of the human spirit and the scientific method. It is also a gripping intellectual thriller in which humanity, facing extermination from all-but-omnipotent aliens, the Grand Galactics, must overcome differences of politics and religion and come together . . . or perish. In 1637, the French mathematician Pierre de Fermat scrawled a note in the margin of a book about an enigmatic theorem: “I have discovered a truly marvelous proof of this proposition which this margin is too narrow to contain.” He also neglected to record his proof elsewhere. Thus began a search for the Holy Grail of mathematics–a search that didn’t end until 1994, when Andrew Wiles published a 150-page proof. But the proof was burdensome, overlong, and utilized mathematical techniques undreamed of in Fermat’s time, and so it left many critics unsatisfied–including young Ranjit Subramanian, a Sri Lankan with a special gift for mathematics and a passion for the famous “Last Theorem.” When Ranjit writes a three-page proof of the theorem that relies exclusively on knowledge available to Fermat, his achievement is hailed as a work of genius, bringing him fame and fortune. But it also brings him to the attention of the National Security Agency and a shadowy United Nations outfit called Pax per Fidem, or Peace Through Transparency, whose secretive workings belie its name. Suddenly Ranjit–together with his wife, Myra de Soyza, an expert in artificial intelligence, and their burgeoning family–finds himself swept up in world-shaking events, his genius for abstract mathematical thought put to uses that are both concrete and potentially deadly. Meanwhile, unbeknownst to anyone on Earth, an alien fleet is approaching the planet at a significant percentage of the speed of light. Their mission: to exterminate the dangerous species of primates known as homo sapiens. From the Hardcover edition.

Die Simpsons sind nicht nur „eines der intelligentesten Kunstwerke unserer Zeit“ (Daniel Kehlmann), sie stecken auch voller Mathematik! Spielerisch leicht und unterhaltsam lüftet Simon Singh die mathematischen Geheimnisse der erfolgreichsten TV-Serie der Welt. Ob Homer ein donutförmiges Universum entwirft, den berühmten Fermat‘schen Satz zu widerlegen scheint, oder Lisa als Baseballtrainerin den Geheimnissen der Statistik auf die Spur kommt: Der Bestsellerautor aus Großbritannien nimmt die Episoden der Simpsons zum Ausgangspunkt für eine Tour d’Horizon durch die Welt der Algebra und Geometrie. Ein Muss für Millionen Simpsons-Fans - und ein Buch, das die Mathematik ins Zentrum der Populärkultur rückt. „Simon Singh deckt auf, wie Simpsons-Fans jahrzehntelang klammheimlich Mathe-Unterricht erhielten. Ein brillantes Buch.“ David X. Cohen, Autor von Futurama und Die Simpsons "Sie glauben, dass sich Mathematik und Humor widersprechen? Simon Singh beweist das Gegenteil!" Christoph Drösser, Journalist der Zeit

Die Habilitation ist eine alte Einrichtung der deutschen Universi täten. Nachdem der junge Doktor nach der Promotion einige Jahre wissenschaftlich gearbeitet hat, legt er der Fakultät eine größere Ver öffentlichung, die Habilitationsschrift, mit dem Ziel vor, die Venia Legendi zu erwerben, das Recht, in eigener Verantwortung zu lehren und Vorlesungen zu halten. Im Rahmen einer Fakultätssitzung fin den Habilitationsvortrag und wissenschaftliche Aussprache statt. Einige Wochen später wird das Verfahren durch die öffentliche An trittsvorlesung abgeschlossen, die zugleich den Höhepunkt darstellt. An manchen Universitäten scheint die Bedeutung der Antritts vorlesung zurückgegangen zu sein. In Bonn haben wir uns bemüht, diese Tradition fortzuftihren und die Antrittsvorlesungen zu einem wichtigen Teil des mathematischen Lebens zu machen. In den Vor trägen soll ein anspruchsvolles Thema so dargestellt werden, daß Mathematiker und Naturwissenschaftler, die vielleicht in ganz ande ren Gebieten arbeiten, und auch Studenten, den Ausftihrungen fol gen können. Historische Entwicklungen und die Zusammenhänge der mathematischen Gebiete untereinander und mit Bereichen außer halb der Mathematik sollen erkennbar werden, den Zuhörern soll et was von der Faszination der Mathematik und ihrer Rolle im geisti gen Leben vermittelt werden.

Extremely carefully written, masterfully thought out, and skillfully arranged introduction ... to the arithmetic of algebraic curves, on the one hand, and to the algebro-geometric aspects of number theory, on the other hand. ... an excellent guide for beginners in arithmetic geometry, just as an interesting reference and methodical inspiration for teachers of the subject ... a highly welcome addition to the existing literature. --Zentralblatt MATH The interaction between number theory and algebraic geometry has been especially fruitful. In this volume, the author gives a unified presentation of some of the basic tools and concepts in number theory, commutative algebra, and algebraic geometry, and for the first time in a book at this level, brings out the deep analogies between them. The geometric viewpoint is stressed throughout the book. Extensive examples are given to illustrate each new concept, and many interesting exercises are given at the end of each chapter. Most of the important results in the one-dimensional case are proved, including Bombieri's proof of the Riemann Hypothesis for curves over a finite field. While the book is not intended to be an introduction to schemes, the author indicates how many of the geometric notions introduced in the book relate to schemes, which will aid the reader who goes to the next level of this rich subject.
