Did you guys hear about this? Sudharaka was kind of enough to let me know about this potential proof. Here's an article about it. Apparently the proof is around 500 pages long so obviously the claim hasn't been confirmed yet and will take a while for the math community to comment on.

That's an amazing story. Kudos to those mathematicians brave enough to tackle the verification problem - I wonder if Wiles is planning on weighing in?

Lol, what's with the wile's thing? He pretty much achieved his child dream of fermat's last theorem. I dont think he needs to be in everything. Although it's mathematics who wouldn't?
