Celebrating 30 years of Andrew Wiles and Fermat's Last Theorem

Share this page

To celebrate 30 years since he announced his proof of Fermat's Last Theorem we were lucky enough to visit Andrew Wiles at the University of Oxford. In this video, produced by Dan Aspel and Grace Merton from the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences, Wiles tells us about his experience working on the proof, sharing it with the world, and the exciting mathematics it has led to.

You can find out more about Fermat's Last Theorem in this article and accompanying podcast, and in this collection of further reading.

This video was produced as part of our collaboration with the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences (INI) – you can find all the content from the collaboration here.

The INI is an international research centre and our neighbour here on the University of Cambridge's maths campus. It attracts leading mathematical scientists from all over the world, and is open to all. Visit www.newton.ac.uk to find out more.
