Re: Fermat's last theorem

I have an answer to a question not yet asked. "Relatively Prime" does not mean it is "sort-of, more-or-less, kinda Prime", it means that two numbers have no common factors (except 1 or -1) -  in other words if they were a fraction they couldn't be simplified further.

Re: Fermat's last theorem

Now the general:
1.Elliptic curve:

It wasn't so hard.
Let have a cartesian plane with coordinates xOy.
The following equation is given:


If it's "true" we plot (x,y). Otherwase, we don't plot it.
Here's a plot of elliptic curve(picture 1).
Because the equation was 2 roots:y=sqrt(...) and y=-sqrt(...) the elliptic curve is a Riemann surface.

Re: Fermat's last theorem

Now I should understand why every elliptic curve is Riemann surface with geus 1.
