cx^{2} + dx + e.
Elliptic curves, which are said to have a genus of 1, have an unusually rich theory and structure, and their study is linked to many other important areas of mathematics and their applications. For example, it was work done on elliptic curves by Andrew Wiles that finally led to a proof of Fermat's last theorem. ## Related category• NUMBER THEORY | ||||||
