A Simple, Direct Proof of Fermat's Last Theorem

Authors: Philip Aaron Bloom

No simple proof of FLT has been established for every n >2 . To prove FLT we devise, for positive integral n, a detailed algebraic identity, r^n + s^n = t^n, that holds for positive real (r, s, t), which we can relate to x^n + y^n = z^n holding for positive integral (x, y, z). We show for n > 2 that there exists no positive integral (r, s, t). We infer that integral (r, s, t) equals integral (x, y, z) by using our identity's unrestricted variable. So, for n > 2, there exists no integral (x, y, z).
