# Seminar on Fermat’s Last Theorem

*V. Kumar Murty*

A co-publication of the AMS and Canadian Mathematical Society

The most significant recent development in number theory is the
work of Andrew Wiles on modular elliptic curves. Besides
implying Fermat's Last Theorem, his work establishes a new reciprocity
law. Reciprocity laws lie at the heart of number theory.

Wiles' work draws on many of the tools of modern number theory
and the purpose of this volume is to introduce readers to some of
this background material.

Based on a seminar held during 1993–1994 at the
Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences, this book
contains articles on elliptic curves, modular forms and modular curves,
Serre's conjectures, Ribet's theorem, deformations of Galois
representations, Euler systems, and annihilators of Selmer groups. All
of the authors are well known in their field and have made significant
contributions to the general area of elliptic curves, Galois
representations, and modular forms.

Features:

- Brings together a unique collection of number theoretic tools.
- Makes accessible the tools needed to understand one of the biggest breakthroughs in mathematics.
- Provides numerous references for further study.

Titles in this series are copublished with the Canadian Mathematical Society. Members of the Canadian Mathematical Society may order at the AMS member price.
