# Shahed Sharif : Class field theory and cyclotomic fields

We'll undertake a gentle introduction to class field theory by investigating cyclotomic fields, including a proof of quadratic reciprocity. The results we'll discuss complement Les Saper's Grad Faculty seminar talk, though by no means is the latter a prerequisite. As a special treat, I will reveal a completely new, elementary proof of Fermat's Last Theorem.
