Pierre de Fermat's 410th Birthday Celebrated With a Math Logo from Google Search~

Pierre de Fermat is the patron saint of unfinished business. In 1637, the French mathematician jotted down his 'Last Theorem' in the margins of a ancient Greek mathematical text. Pierre's theorem ended up vexing mathematicians for 358 years before it was finally solved.

Today, on what would be Pierre's 410th birthday, Google and the Psychology of the Call team (POTC) savor the amateur mathematician's work with this posting.
