British Mathematician Awarded Prize for Solving Centuries Old Math Problem

A British mathematician has won the Abel Prize in math for solving an ancient math theorem. On Tuesday, Andrew Wiles was given the award, which is considered the Nobel Prize of math, by Norway’s Academy of Science and Letters. The academy said Wiles was chosen "for his stunning proof of (French mathematician Pierre de) Fermat's Last Theorem by way of the modularity conjecture for semi-stable elliptic curves, opening a new era in number theory."
