Fermat's Last Theorem

In this special podcast we look back on this remarkable mathematical moment with Andrew Wiles, Jack Thorne and Tom Körner, and how it opened new doors onto the future of mathematics.

Andrew Wiles's proof of Fermat's Last Theorem solved a centuries-old problem by opening a door onto the future of mathematics.

"Find problems you enjoy, and just work on them. It doesn't matter if you never solve them." We speak to Andrew Wiles on the 30th anniversary of his announcing the proof of Fermat's Last Theorem.

To celebrate the anniversary of its proof, this collection of articles, podcasts and videos explores one of the most beguiling theorems in maths.

Barry Mazur has received the 2022 Chern Medal for profound discoveries in topology, arithmetic geometry and number theory.

We talk to Jack Thorne about his lecture at the ICM 2018 and his work "faceting the gem stone" in number theory.

Robert Langlands wins for his "visionary program".

We were very excited to meet Andrew Wiles this summer! In this interview and videos he tells us what it was like to prove Fermat's Last Theorem, and what it feels like to do maths.

In these two short videos the legendary Andrew Wiles talks about what it was like to prove Fermat's Last Theorem, and what it feels like to do maths.
