Elliptic curvesAn elliptic curve is of the form Character is who you are when no one is looking. #2 20070930 23:46:02
Re: Elliptic curvesElliptic curves over the field of rationals are related to modular forms – a result which was crucial to the proving of Fermat’s last theorem by Andrew Wiles. #3 20071001 00:01:29
Re: Elliptic curvesYou're correct, JaneFairfax! Character is who you are when no one is looking. #4 20071207 07:10:45
Re: Elliptic curves
It was Fermat who proved that 26 is the only number between a perfect square and cube.
