Product description

Review

"The book remains, as before, an extremely attractive introduction to algebraic number theory, from the ideal-theoretic perspective." -Andrew Bremner, Mathematiacl Reviews, February 2003

Synopsis

One of the latest mathematical discoveries was the proof, by Andrew Wiles, of Fermat's last theorum, a 300-year old conjecture that had eluded professional mathematicians as well as serious amateurs. The problem is part of the theory of algebraic numbers and its solution draws on an incredible range of modern mathematics. This revised edition introduces the elements necessary for understanding the proof of Fermat's last theorum as well as newer developments and unsolved problems. It gathers together the historical development of the subject with a presentation of mathematical techniques.
