Review:

"This text provides a sweeping introduction to all those mathematical topics, concepts, methods, techniques, and classical results that are necessary to understand Andrew Wiles's theory culminating in the first complete proof of Fermat's last theorem. The text is accessible, without compromising the rigor of its mathematical exposition, to reasoned undergraduate students, at least so for the most part it can serve as the basis for various teaching courses. It sets the whole discussion in a fascinating, generally educating historical context, thereby travelling - metaphorically speaking - through the centuries of mathematical history. No doubt, it is a true blessing that the English translation of this unique book is now at hand for a much wider public." Werner Kleinert (Berlin) in Zentralblatt MATH 1036

About the Author:

Yves Hellegouarch studied at the Ecole Normale Superieure in Paris. He has been teaching at the University of Caen since 1970. In 1972 he wrote a thesis, "Elliptic Curves and Fermat's Equation."
