Heidi Dugan's random ramblings and thoughts ... My attempt to capture a moment before it is lost forever. Opinions, rants, links, ephemera.
You know that this proof has been available since 1995, right? (Chris.. hey can you remove the identity step on comments so I can be _me_ again.)
I remember when that proof came out. Apparently it was controversial because it involved some math that wouldn't have been available in Fermat's time. I don't know if the proof has been generally accepted by now or not. Anyway, I just remember Joe commenting that there was still the possibility of someone writing a "real" proof. But I'm not at all versed in this stuff, so who knows?
