# 1993

This number is a prime.

The smallest prime *p* that gives a zeroless pandigital number when the Fibonacci-like recurrence a(*n*) = a(*n* - 1) + a(*n* - 2) with a(1) = 1 and a(2) = *p* is applied. [De Geest]

In the prime year 1993 Caldwell announced what was then both the largest known factorial prime (3610! - 1) and the largest known primorial prime (24029# + 1). [Post]

In June 1993 Andrew Wiles first announced that he had proven the Shimura-Taniyama-Weil conjecture for enough special classes of curves that to complete the proof of Fermat's Last Theorem. Soon an error was found! With Richard Taylor he released a corrected proof in September 1994 (published in 1995). [Beedassy]

The year Hillel Furstenberg received the Israel Prize.
