Fermat's Last Theorem for Factional and Irrational Exponents
Morgan, Frank
College Mathematics Journal, v41 n3 p182-185 May 2010
Fermat's Last Theorem says that for integers n greater than 2, there are no solutions to x[superscript n] + y[superscript n] = z[superscript n] among positive integers. What about rational exponents? Irrational n? Negative n? See what an undergraduate senior seminar discovered.
