FERMAT GRAPHIC goes here.

Above image created with the old float version of Fermat.

The latest versions of Fermat can now run on Windows, thanks to the efforts of Bogdan Radu. Windows 10 introduced a new feature, named WSL (or the Windows Subsystem for Linux), which allows a user to natively run Linux applications within a Windows environment. See the instructions available here written by Bogdan Radu. May 2021.

Release of Fermat Source Code. The source code for version 6.21 was released under GNU GPL in August 2018. If you are interested in having a copy, and have not done so recently, email me.

Update: The source code for version 6.37 was released under GNU GPL in June 2020.

The manual for the 64 bit Linux and Mac versions has been updated. April 2021.



New 64 bit Fermat 6.5, with vastly improved multivariate polynomial gcd ever since 6.0. June 25, 2021.
