SUMMARY:Modularity and the Fermat Equation over Totally Re
al Fields - Samir Siksek\, University of Warwick

DESCRIPTION:Just over twenty years ago Wiles proved Fermatâ€™s L
ast Theorem\, by proving modularity of semistable
elliptic curves over the rationals. Thanks to the
efforts of many mathematicians\, it is now possibl
e to extend the modularity statement to almost all
elliptic curves over totally real fields. We disc
uss what this means in down-to-earth language\, an
d also some implications for the Fermat equation.
This talk is based on joint work with\nNuno Freita
s (Bonn) and Bao Le Hung (Harvard).
