For over 350 years, some of the greatest minds of
science struggled to prove what was known as Fermat's Last Theorem—the idea that a certain
simple equation had no solutions. Now hear from the man who spent seven years of his life
cracking the problem, read the intriguing story of an 18th century woman mathematician who
hid her identity in order to work on Fermat's Last Theorem, and demonstrate that a related
equation, the Pythagorean Theorem, is true.
