Wiles is giving a lecture there at 7:00pm. Me and a friend of
mine would love to tag along :). -- ilyas
\-whos is the target audience of the lecture. where is it at?--psb
\-general audience. Some auditorium (I don't remember, but
the brochure is around the CSUA office). Tickets are $8.50,
I think. -- ilyas.
\_ This is a lecture about... what? Getting your cats and
dogs to get along better?
\_ "Better Breasts and a Tight Tummy in Ten Days --
With Your New Personal Trainer, Andeeeeeeeeeee!!"
\_ Isn't this the guy who proved Fermat's Last Theorem? --PeterM
\_ He's the guy that proved the Tiniyama-Shimura (sp?) conjecture,
which Ken Ribet proved implied FLT.
\- Taniyama-Shimura and it was in the other order
chronologically, but both proofs are quite recent.
does anyone know how to explain what a modular form is
to people with only 50a/50b math? i've explained a structure
of the proof [with a lot of black boxing when it came to stuff
i didnt understand] but i had a lot of trouble trying to
explain the fundamental idea of the mod form. --psb

\_ i have a math degree from berkeley, have published in math,
and dont have a clue what you are talking about(because i'm
into geometry, and have only had 113 algebra.) I think you
just justified the above post about your obscure posts.
\_ Infidel bastard! You have defamed the mighty psb! Your
children will grow up to fellate dead goats for money
and LIKE IT!!
\_Is there much money in fellating dead goats?
I also have a math degree from Berkeley and have
no idea what psb is talking about.
\_ why did I tihnk this was gonna read
"and am looking for a job" after the Berkeley
part?
\_ funny. My brother has a math degree
From trinity College, Cambridge Univ. in
the UK. He designs multi million dollar
financial options and can't balance his
checkbook to save his life. math hmm...

\_ Use a computer to balance your checkbook.
\_ Use one to fellate dead goats. |
