Not correct name[edit]

This name is misleading. This is not the real name of the book. OK, but why is it misleading, if it's mentioned in the article? Simple - there exists a book called Fermat's Last Theorem by Amir Aczel. Another Wikipedia article can be created on that book by Aczel itself.

I wanted to bring this to the attention of more experienced math editors here. --Jiujitsuguy (talk) 01:50, 16 September 2012 (UTC)

Singh's own website lists the title as Fermat's Last Theorem [1]. I know nothing about the book, but perhaps there is a different title for international publications? EDIT: In fact, that's exactly what the article says. matt (talk) 09:03, 16 September 2012 (UTC)
I've asked on helpdesk about disambiguating Singh's book from Aczel's book, which will probably involve me doing another migrate (after I've discussed how best to deal with it). Obviously this is a bit pointless if no-ones going to create an article, so could people (Jiujitsuguy in particular) have a think about whether they would create an article and whether they should (is it notable etc, is it satisfactorily dealt with in the author's wiki page?). I've had a look at Amir Aczel and personally I feel his page could do with some love before we think about creating separate pages for his books ProtectheHuman (I'm not logged in, but I'm that guy) (talk) 09:47, 17 October 2012 (UTC)
