Chapter 35- Inter Sequence Polynomials and Fermat’s Last Theorem

The inter sequence polynomials (ISPs) are used to show that Fermat’s last theorem is true for n = 2.  Transforming to a Lucas type sequence for the ISP, it can be shown that given a particular form of two integers,  the sum of their squares is equal to a square of a sum.  If the same form for these integers is used for higher powers of n it is shown that the ISPs cannot be factored into the nth power of their sum.

The ISP’s are also shown to be suitable polynomials for curve fitting of sequences to evaluate non-integer values of n.  The meaning of a derivative of an integer sequence is also explained.
