A Study of Kummer’s Proof of Fermat’s Last Theorem for Regular Primes

Por • 19 jul, 2013 • Category: Educacion

We study Kummer’s approach towards proving the Fermat’s last Theorem for regular primes. Some basic algebraic prerequisites are also discussed in this report, and also a brief history of the problem is mentioned. We review among other things the Class number formula, and use this formula to conclude our study.
