Pierre de Fermat

"To divide a cube into two other cubes, a fourth power or in general any power whatever into two powers of the same denomination above the second is impossible, and I have assuredly found an admirable proof of this, but the margin is too narrow to contain it." – scria Pierre de Fermat pe copia sa a Artitmeticii lui Diophantus.

Pierre de Fermat, matematician amator si avocat francez in parlamentul de la Toulouse s-a nascut pe 16 August 1601. Wikipedia si Google zice ca s-a nascut pe 17 august iar Goolge ii dedica un doodle special astazi dar conform Born-Today.com Pierre de Fermat s-a nascut in aceeasi zi cu mine (sic!)
