Fermat's Last Theorem: The Story of a Riddle That Confounded the World's Greatest Minds for 358 Years - Paperback
ISBN: 009982440X
[SR: 305562], Paperback, [EAN: 9780007241811], Harper Perennial, Harper Perennial, Book, [PU: Harper Perennial], Harper Perennial, When Cambridge mathematician Andrew Wiles announced a solution for Fermat's last theorem in 1993, it electrified the world of mathematics. After a flaw was discovered in the proof, Wiles had to work for another year--he had already laboured in solitude for seven years--to establish that he had solved the 350-year-old problem. Simon Singh's book is a lively, comprehensible explanation of Wiles's work and of the colourful history that has build up around Fermat's last theorem over the years. The book contains some problems that offer a taste for the maths, but it also includes limericks to give a feeling for the quirkier side of mathematicians. , 922516, History of Mathematics, 922508, History & Philosophy, 57, Science & Nature, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 278362, History of Mathematics, 278320, Mathematics, 57, Science & Nature, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 922522, Mathematical Theory, 922518, Chaos, 278381, Game Theory, 278320, Mathematics, 57, Science & Nature, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 922520, Popular Maths, 278320, Mathematics, 57, Science & Nature, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 922944, Recreational, 278320, Mathematics, 57, Science & Nature, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 922942, Maths, 922868, Popular Science, 57, Science & Nature, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 564352, Mathematics, 570902, Algebra, 570874, Applied Mathematics, 570912, Calculus & Mathematical Analysis, 570934, Combinatorics & Graph Theory, 570936, Geometry, 570964, Mathematical Theory, 564334, Scientific, Technical & Medical, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 270505, Mathematical Games, 270496, Puzzles & Quizzes, 270453, Hobbies & Games, 55, Sports, Hobbies & Games, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books
