William Porras

Abstract:
Fermat's Last Theorem: states that for n>2, x,y> 0 integers, it is not possible that z is also a natural number in the following equation:
xn + yn = zn
Using mathematical tools known in the seventeenth century (when it formulated the theorem), I discover a fundamental property of Fermat's equation (z for n=2>z for n=3>z for n=4>z for n=5> ... ..).
I show that in the Pythagorean equation z²=x²+y², I can get all the Pythagorean triples, making z=y+m where m is a natural number.
I show that Fermat's equation, I can make z=y+q, where q2 is not a natural number, being shown the last theorem in a simply way.
I will like to send a complete proof. Thanks, William Porras

From Russia with Love: A Critical Reader

Edited by Amit Sarwal

During the last few years college / university curriculum in India has opened up to adjust new literatures of which Spy thriller is an integral part. Since this shift to include such emerging areas of study is very recent in the Indian context, we still lack the essential Readers or critical books designed particularly to cater to the needs of Indian teachers and students.

Art and Lives: Studies in the History and Representation of Sexualities

Keynote speaker: George E. Haggerty

After a decade of Queer People, we reach our sixth conference: a time for reflection or a time for looking forward? Or both? Has anything changed, and if so in what directions?
