Lecture 32: Fermat's Last Theorem and Modularity of Elliptic Curves

William Stein

Date: Math 124 $ \quad$ HARVARD UNIVERSITY $ \quad$ Fall 2001

In this lecture I will sketch an outline of the proof of Fermat's last theorem, then give a rigorous account of what it means for an elliptic curve to be ``modular''.

The are several exercises below. They are optional, but if you do them and give them to Grigor, I suspect that he would look at them (whether or not you do the exercises will not directly affect your course grade in any way).
