(Redirected from Mathematician:Richard Taylor)Jump to navigation Jump to search
British and American mathematician working in the field of number theory.
Collaborated with Andrew John Wiles on Fermat's Last Theorem.
With Michael Howard Harris, proved the Local Langlands Conjectures for $\GL n$ over a number field.
With Christophe Breuil, Brian Conrad and Fred Irvin Diamond, completed the proof of the Taniyama-Shimura Conjecture.
Building on work with Laurent Clozel, Michael Howard Harris, and Nicholas Ian Shepherd-Barron, announced a proof of the Sato-Tate Conjecture, for elliptic curves with non-integral j-invariant.
