**Synopsis Fermat's Last Theorem by : Simon Singh**

In 1963 a schoolboy browsing in his local library stumbled across a great mathematical problem: Fermat's Last Theorem, a puzzle that every child can now understand, but which has baffled mathematicians for over 300 years. Aged just ten, Andrew Wiles dreamed he would crack it.

**Synopsis Invitation to the Mathematics of Fermat-Wiles by : Yves Hellegouarch**

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

**Synopsis The Mathematical Career of Pierre de Fermat, 1601-1665 by : Michael Sean Mahoney**

Hailed as one of the greatest mathematical results of the twentieth century, the recent proof of Fermat's Last Theorem by Andrew Wiles brought to public attention the enigmatic problem-solver Pierre de Fermat, who centuries ago stated his famous conjecture in a margin of a book, writing that he did not have enough room to show his "truly marvelous demonstration." Along with formulating this proposition--xn+yn=zn has no rational solution for n > 2--Fermat, an inventor of analytic geometry, also laid the foundations of differential and integral calculus, established, together with Pascal, the conceptual guidelines of the theory of probability, and created modern number theory. In one of the first full-length investigations of Fermat's life and work, Michael Sean Mahoney provides rare insight into the mathematical genius of a hobbyist who never sought to publish his work, yet who ranked with his contemporaries Pascal and Descartes in shaping the course of modern mathematics.

**Synopsis Fermat's Enigma by : Simon Singh**

xn + yn = zn, where n represents 3, 4, 5, ...no solution "I have discovered a truly marvelous demonstration of this proposition which this margin is too narrow to contain." With these words, the seventeenth-century French mathematician Pierre de Fermat threw down the gauntlet to future generations. What came to be known as Fermat's Last Theorem looked simple; proving it, however, became the Holy Grail of mathematics, baffling its finest minds for more than 350 years. In Fermat's Enigma--based on the author's award-winning documentary film, which aired on PBS's "Nova"--Simon Singh tells the astonishingly entertaining story of the pursuit of that grail, and the lives that were devoted to, sacrificed for, and saved by it. Here is a mesmerizing tale of heartbreak and mastery that will forever change your feelings about mathematics.

**Synopsis Math Girls 3 by : Hiroshi Yuki**

In the early twentieth century, a massive undertaking to rid mathematics of all paradoxes and inconsistencies was underway. Known as Hilbert's program, it sought to provide an unshakable foundation for all of mathematics. Things seemed to be proceeding well until young Kurt Godel stunned the world by proving that Hilbert's goals were unobtainable, that contradiction was part of the warp and weave of any mathematical system. Yet what at the time seemed to be a fatal blow to mathematical consistency now forms the basis of modern logic. Godel's incompleteness theorems are often misunderstood to be a statement of the limits of mathematical reasoning, but in truth they strengthen mathematics, building it up to be more powerful than what had come before. In this third book in the Math Girls series, join Miruka and friends as they tackle the basics of modern logic, learning such topics as the Peano axioms, set theory, and diagonalization, leading up to an in-depth exploration of Godel's famous theorems. Along the way, visit other interesting and important topics such as trigonometry and the epsilon-delta definition of limits, and of course take on challenges from the enigmatic Mr. Muraki. Math Girls 3: Godel's Incompleteness Theorems has something for anyone interested in mathematics, from advanced high school students to college math majors and educators."
