Pierre de Fermat

Pierre de Fermat founded analytical geometry alongside Rene Descartes. Furthermore, he worked in the fields of number theory and was involved in the development of the fundamentals of probability theory - pay to do homework . Fermat conducted a lively scientific correspondence with mathematicians of his time such as Rene Descartes and Blaise Pascal. His name became particularly famous in connection with the so-called (great) theorem of Fermat, the proof of which occupied many generations of mathematicians and was only achieved in 1994 by a British scientist.

Personal data

Pierre de Fermat was born on August 20, 1601 in Beaumont on the Garonne (in Gascony, near Toulouse). According to the latest sources, the year of birth is given as 1607 or 1608. His father was quite wealthy as a merchant who mainly dealt in leather goods and was able to give the boy a good education - . Pierre was first taught by Franciscan monks, then studied law in Toulouse and became a lawyer. Although his office was doing well, he entered the civil service in 1631, held several offices at the Toulouse Court, and worked there for 34 years until his death. He was considered upright and incorruptible (which was by no means normal at the time) and gained great reputation for his righteousness, so that he was ennobled for his services.

Fermat lived quietly and withdrawn, eschewed the public and led a good family life that resulted in five children. He was very well educated, mastered all the major European languages ??and wrote poetry in French and Spanish. He only left his hometown for business trips - excel homework assignments . During one of these he died on January 12, 1665 in Castres near Toulouse. He found his final resting place in the Augustinian church in Toulouse.

About the scientific working method of Fermat

Fermat engaged in mathematics alongside his job, out of a hobby. This explains why there were almost no publications from him during his lifetime. He only passed on his discoveries in a lively correspondence with mathematical friends (including Blaise Pascal and Rene Descartes ). It was not until long after Fermat's death that his eldest son, Samuel-Clement (who was also a lawyer), first published the marginal notes his father had entered in the books he had read, and later (in 1679) a compilation of records, this under the Title "Various mathematical works by Mr. de Fermat, selected from his letters ...".

Fermat's way of working explains that he got into a dispute, especially with Descartes, about the priority of his discoveries.
