Proving FLT

Colin McLarty has posted a preprint of a forthcoming BSL piece “What does it take to prove Fermat’s Last Theorem?‘. I don’t pretend to understand everything here. But even if you don’t get all the details, the paper still should give you a handle on the question of the role in Wiles’s proof of  assumptions that go beyond ZFC. Impressive stuff.
