# Taro Morishima

Taro Morishima ( Morishima Tarō?, 1903 – 1989) was a Japanese mathematician specializing in algebra who attended Tokyo University in Japan. Morishima published at least thirteen papers, including his work on Fermat's Last Theorem.[1] and a collected works volume published in 1990 after his death[2]. He also corresponded several times with American mathematician H. S. Vandiver.[3]

**Morishima's Theorem on FLT
**

Let m be a prime number not exceeding 31. Let p be prime, and let x, y, z be integers such that xp + yp + zp = 0. Assume that p does not divide the product xyz. Then, p² must divide mp − 1-1.
