About the Book

Fermats Enigma Resolved: An Algebraic Proof of His Last Theorem vindicates Pierre de Fermat by arguing that the brilliant amateur mathematician did have the proof of his last theorem, as he claimed when he presented the theorem circa 1637. Although his actually proof may never be known, the presentation of a relatively simple by paradoxical algebraic proof shows that, whatever his proof may have been, it could have been done using the mathematics of his time. Dr. Roger Gilmont has expanded the algebraic proof into a text appropriate for students and teachers with a moderate command of algebra and offers a clear and decisive explication in Fermats Enigma Resolved: An Algebraic Proof of His Last Theorem.
