Philosopher Suggests Stripped Down Approach To Fermat’s Last Theorem
2013-03-04 19:30:08

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online In 1637, the French lawyer and part-time mathematician Pierre de Fermat put forward a simple and elegant numerical riddle that would puzzle and confound math geeks for 358 years. Known as Fermat´s Last Theorem, or simply Fermat´s conjecture, the theorem states no whole, positive numbers can make the equation xn + yn = zn true when ℠n´ is greater than 2. Scribbling haphazardly in the margin of an old Greek math...

Finite formula found for partition numbers For centuries, some of the greatest names in math have tried to make sense of partition numbers, the basis for adding and counting. Many mathematicians added major pieces to the puzzle, but all of them fell short of a full theory to explain partitions. Instead, their work raised more questions about this fundamental area of math. On Friday, Emory mathematician Ken Ono will unveil new theories that answer these famous old questions. Ono and his...
