Abstract

Published here, and discussed, are some manuscripts and a letter of Sophie Germain concerning her work on Fermat’s Last theorem. These autographs, held at Bibliothèque Nationale of Paris, at the Moreniana Library of Florence and at the University Library of Göttingen, contribute to a substantial revaluation of her work on this subject.
