In number theory, Fermat's Last Theorem (sometimes called Fermat's conjecture, especially in older texts) states that no three positive integers a, b, and c satisfy the equation a n + b n = c n for any integer value of n greater than 2. The cases n = 1 and n = 2 have been known since antiquity to have an infinite number of solutions.. The proposition was first conjectured by Pierre de Fermat Conjectured by: Pierre de Fermat.   Solved and Unsolved Problems in Number Shanks. Spartan, Washington, D.C., x + pp. IllusAuthor: B. W.

This book shows how each result leads to further results and conjectures. Since the Renaissance, every century has seen the solution of more mathematical problems than the century before, yet many mathematical problems, both major and minor, still remain unsolved.

These unsolved problems occur in multiple domains, including physics, computer science, algebra, analysis, combinatorics, algebraic, differential, discrete and Euclidean geometries, graph, group, model.

To many laymen, mathematicians appear to be problem solvers, people who do "hard sums". Even inside the profession we dassify ourselves as either theorists or problem solvers. Mathematics is kept alive, much more than by the activities of either dass, by the appearance of a succession of unsolved problems, both from within mathematics-itself and from the in creasing number .Many number theorists got their start trying to solve problems from Guy's book Unsolved problems in number theory.

Guy described himself as an amateur mathematician, although his work was widely respected by professionals. In a career that spans eight decades he wrote or co-authored more than a dozen books and collaborated with some of the most Alma mater: Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge.

It's difficult to keep track of the important and/or interesting unsolved problems in any field, but number theory is particularly broad and deep.

Richard Guy attempts to do the impossible and cover the unsolved problems of number theory, and he does it so well that this was *the* book I carried with me constantly as an undergraduate/5.
