Math 666B and 690D: Graduate Student Seminar
Organisers: Henri Darmon, Adrian Iovita, Hershy Kisilevsky.
Time: Tuesday 2:304:30, in Room 719A.
This seminar is aimed primarily at
the graduate students in the number theory group.
The seminar this term will be devoted to the
background relevant for the proof of Fermat's Last Theorem by
Wiles, following the treatment in the survey
Fermat's Last Theorem
by Darmon, Diamond, Taylor.
