A supernova (SN1987a) became visible to earthlings in the year 1987.
The year Noam Elkies proved that an elliptic curve over the
rational numbers was supersingular at infinitely many
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.)
