Pierre de Fermat

Previous article, I've written about the google doodle that commemorates Indonesia's independence day republic of Indonesia 2011.

Today, Google came up with the theme of Pierre de Fermat. In google doodle that appears not the name of Pierre de Fermat or Pierre de Fermat's birthday, but the writing I have discovered a trully marvelous proof of this theorem, which this doodle is too small to contain. When we click the google doodle icon with the mouse the new name of Pierre de Fermat appear.

Pierre de Fermat (French pronunciation: [pjɛːʁ dəfɛʁˈma]; 17 August 1601 or 1607/8 – 12 January 1665) was a French lawyer at the Parlement of Toulouse, France, and an amateur mathematician who is given credit for early developments that led to infinitesimal calculus, including his adequality. In particular, he is recognized for his discovery of an original method of finding the greatest and the smallest ordinates of curved lines, which is analogous to that of the then unknown differential calculus, as well as his research into number theory. He made notable contributions to analytic geometry, probability, and optics. He is best known for Fermat's Last Theorem, which he described in a note at the margin of a copy of Diophantus' Arithmetica.

Famous mathematical theory of Pierre de Fermat is
an + bn ≠ cn for n>2
