By that year, most number theorists were convinced — though proof would have to wait — that every Galois representation could be assigned, again by a precise rule, D a modular form, which is a kind of two-dimensional generalization of the familiar sine and cosine functions from trigonometry.

But there are no such forms. Therefore there is no modular form D , no Galois representation C , no equation B , and no solution A. The only thing left to do was to establish the missing link between C and D , which mathematicians call the modularity conjecture.

## About this book

Twenty years after Yutaka Taniyama and Goro Shimura, in the s, first intimated the link between B and D , via C , mathematicians had grown convinced that this must be right. The connection was simply too good not to be true. But the modularity conjecture itself looked completely out of reach. Objects of type C and D were just too different. I will not try to untangle this ambiguity.

## Table of contents

But if what the logicians had in mind was to formally verify the published proof of the relation between C and D , then they were setting their sights too low. For one thing, Wiles only proved a bit more than enough of the modularity conjecture to complete the A to E deduction.

More recently, in the fall of , for example, 10 mathematicians gathered at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, New Jersey, in a successful effort to prove a connection between elliptic curves and modular forms in a new setting.

If asked to reproduce the proof as a sequence of logical deductions, they would undoubtedly have come up with 10 different versions.

Each one would resemble the A to E outline above, but would be much more finely grained. They would refer in a similar way to the proofs they studied in the expository articles or in the graduate courses they taught or attended.

And though each of the 10 would have left out some details, they would all be right. Nothing outside the formal system is allowed to contaminate the ideal proof — as if every law had to carry a watermark confirming its constitutional justification. But this attitude runs deeply counter to what mathematicians themselves say about their proofs.

More precisely, it had long been known how to leverage such an elliptic curve into C a Galois representation, which is an infinite collection of equations that are related to the elliptic curve, and to each other, by precise rules. The links between these three steps were all well-understood in By that year, most number theorists were convinced — though proof would have to wait — that every Galois representation could be assigned, again by a precise rule, D a modular form, which is a kind of two-dimensional generalization of the familiar sine and cosine functions from trigonometry.

And though each of the 10 would have left out some details, they would all be right.August The methods introduced by Wiles and Taylor are now part of the toolkit of number theorists, who consider the FLT story closed. About this book Introduction This volume contains expanded versions of lectures given at an instructional conference on number theory and arithmetic geometry held August 9 through 18, at Boston University.

Cambridge MA, pp Twenty years after Yutaka Taniyama and Goro Shimura, in the s, first intimated the link between B and D , via C , mathematicians had grown convinced that this must be right. From Ribet's Theorem and the Frey Curve, any 4 numbers able to be used to disprove Fermat's Last Theorem could also be used to make a semistable elliptic curve "Frey's curve" that could never be modular; But if the Taniyama—Shimura—Weil conjecture were also true for semistable elliptic curves, then by definition every Frey's curve that existed must be modular.
