+ The Fermat Prize for Mathematics Research started in 1987. It rewards the work of one or more mathematicians in fields where the contributions of Pierre de Fermat have been decisive: statements of variational principles, foundations of probability and analytical geometry, and number theory.

+ The year Noam D. Elkies proved that an elliptic curve over the rational numbers is supersingular at infinitely many primes.

+ The 1987 book "Hans Jacob Honegger: From Switzerland to America" by Nadine W. Larson is about a carpenter who changed his last name from Honegger to Honaker. (Honaker primes are named in his honor.)
