Fermat's Last Theorem

The seventeenth-century Frenchman Pierre de Fermat once said:

"There are no whole number solutions to the following equation:

, where n > 2."

Is it true?

"A reckless young fellow from Burma,

Found proofs of the theorem of Fermat

He lived then in terror,

Of finding an error,

Wiles's proof, he suspected, was firmer!"

by Fernando Gouvea
