Merge into Fermat's Last Theorem?
Should this be merged into Fermat's Last Theorem?
- That is where the material used to be, but it was made into a separate article. See also Talk:Fermat's last theorem#In fiction. --Lambiam 03:33, 28 January 2008 (UTC)
Years ago I recall reading a story (I think it was in Asimov) about Fermat's Last Theorem. The protagonist was supposed to have come up with a solution and some time traveling college students of the future were there to find out how he did it. Due to some particle leakage in their equipment, the protagonist started to have flashes of the future, which ended up helping him meet and couple with a fellow mathematician, and eventually to IIRC solve the theorem, with some minor interaction with the time travelers (something along the lines of "why are you following me?" and "oh no, our special futury viewoscope is leaking hallucinogenic future particles").
Add Stieg Larsson's Millennium Trilogy?
Lisbeth Salander, one of the protagonists in the book series solves Fermats Theorem in the second book of the trilogy. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Lzandman (talk • contribs) 00:22, 13 January 2010 (UTC)
Rename to "Fermat's Last Theorem in popular culture"?
Should this article be renamed to "Fermat's Last Theorem in popular culture"?
Looking at the current list of entries, it may be more appropriate to use the term "popular culture" to refer to media such as songs, play, games, etc.
I am quite new to editing Wikipedia entries so I would welcome any feedback.
Many thanks, Kieran
