*From the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters:*

"Andrew J. Wiles is one of very few mathematicians – if not the only one – whose proof of a theorem has made international headline news. In 1994 he cracked Fermat’s Last Theorem, which at the time was the most famous, and long-running, unsolved problem in the subject’s history...

...The Abel Committee says: 'Few results have as rich a mathematical history and as dramatic a proof as Fermat’s Last Theorem.' "
