## Mathematics Colloquium – Dr. Carl Wang-Erickson

Eisenstein congruences and arithmetic We will begin with two disparate and highly influential questions in arithmetic. For what odd primes p is it straightforward to prove that the Fermat equation xp + yp = zp has no non-trivial solutions among the rational numbers? And considering all possible elliptic curve equations, one particular example being y2 … Continue reading Mathematics Colloquium – Dr. Carl Wang-Erickson
