Thirty years of proof: celebrating Sir Andrew Wiles and Fermat’s Last Theorem

The 23rd of June 2023 marks 30 years since Andrew Wiles delivered his first proof of Fermat’s Last Theorem, right here at INI. In this article, podcast and video interview, we celebrate this tremendous milestone for one of mathematics’ most compelling stories.

The Isaac Newton Institute

“A world famous place for research in the mathematical sciences with a reputation for efficient management and a warm welcome for visitors”

The Isaac Newton Institute is a national and international visitor research institute. It runs research programmes on selected themes in mathematics and the mathematical sciences with applications over a wide range of science and technology. It attracts leading mathematical scientists from the UK and overseas to interact in research over an extended period.

INI has a vital national role, building on many strengths that already exist in UK universities, aiming to generate a new vitality through stimulating and nurturing research throughout the country.

During each scientific programme new collaborations are made and ideas and expertise are exchanged and catalysed through lectures, seminars and informal interaction, which the INI building has been designed specifically to encourage.
