Oxford professor wins £500,000 for solving 300-year-old mathematical mystery

Sir Andrew Wiles’ proof of Fermat’s Last Theorem has been described as ‘an epochal moment for mathematics’

An Oxford University professor has won a £500,000 prize for solving a three-century-old mathematical mystery that was described as an “epochal moment” for academics.

Sir Andrew Wiles, 62, has been awarded the Abel Prize by the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters – and almost half a million pounds – for his proof of Fermat’s Last Theorem, which he published in 1994.
