A Simple and Intuitive Proof of Fermat's Last Theorem

Authors: Miguel Ángel Rodríguez-Roselló
Comments: 14 Pages. v2 is the Spanish version and last version is in English

In this paper it is shown a proof of the so-called “Fermat’s Last Theorem” by means of application of three general principles: the converse of Pythagoras’ Theorem, Dimensional Analysis and the connection algebra-geometry. These simple concepts were within the reach of Fermat himself, what allows us to infer that he could have used them for the “marvelous proof” that he claimed to have.

Calculating Popularity Using a Simple Algorithm

Authors: Gananath R, Sreenath R
Comments: 6 Pages.

The quality of being liked or accepted by peoples is called as popularity. Popularity is calculated by different methods according to the area of application. To calculate the popularity of websites in internet; methods like ‘Click Popularity’ and ‘Link Popularity’ were used. Developmental Psychologist uses sociometric tests to calculate popularity among peer groups. In this paper we have formulated a simple algorithm through which popularity of a candidate can be calculated and also we carried out monte carlo simulation studies of the algorithm. Popularity of either living or nonliving (eg: a commercial product) candidates can be measured using this algorithm.
