These are greatly extended notes based on talks the author has given surrounding his recent work in [BMY] with A. Bertoloni Meli. This note is certainly very rough and that should be kept in mindExpand
On Generalizing the Pythagorean Theorem
Everyone could understand it; no one could prove it. Posed by the great amateur mathematician, Pierre de Fermat (1601-1665), as a marginal note in his copy of Diophantus' Arithmetica, the problemExpand

Lattices in the cohomology of Shimura curves
We prove the main conjectures of Breuil (J Reine Angew Math, 2012) (including a generalisation from the principal series to the cuspidal case) and Dembélé (J Reine Angew Math, 2012), subject to aExpand

Kolyvagin's Conjecture and patched Euler systems in anticyclotomic Iwasawa theory
Let E/Q be an elliptic curve of conductor N and let K be an imaginary quadratic field. Under a certain Heegner hypothesis, Kolyvagin constructed cohomology classes for E using K-CM points andExpand
A fourteenth lecture on Fermat’s Last Theorem∗
The title of this lecture alludes to Ribenboim’s delightful treatise on Fermat’s Last Theorem [Rib1]. Fifteen years after the publication of [Rib1], Andrew Wiles finally succeeded in solving Fermat’sExpand
The Number Theory Revival
After the work of Diophantus, number theory in Europe languished for about 1000 years. In Asia there was significant progress, as we saw in Chapter 5, on topics such as Pell’s equation. The firstExpand
Is There a "Simple" Proof of Fermat's Last Theorem?
We present several approaches to a possible “simple” proof of Fermat’s Last Theorem (FLT), which states that for all n greater than 2, there do not exist x, y, z such that x n + y n = z n , where x,Expand

Ring-Theoretic Properties of Certain Hecke Algebras
The purpose of this article is to provide a key ingredient of [W2] by establishing that certain minimal Hecke algebras considered there are complete intersections. As is recorded in [W2], a methodExpand
On the method of Coleman and Chabauty
