Description: A proof of the full Taniyama-Shimura conjecture, partly included in Wiles's 1994 proof of Fermat's Last Theorem, was announced last week [June, 1999] at a conference in Park City, Utah, by Christophe Breuil, Brian Conrad, Fred Diamond, and Richard Taylor, building on the earlier work of Wiles and Taylor. The result remains tentative until the paper is written up carefully... Neville Barnard likes the equation 2 + 2 = 2 x 2, and asks for other similar equations, involving two or more numbers on each side of the equation.
