One of Professor Ribet’s most notable achievements is his proof of the epsilon conjecture, which is now known as Ribet’s Theorem. This was a significant step toward the proof of Fermat's Last Theorem, a problem that had puzzled mathematicians for over 350 years. In recognition of his remarkable work, Professor Ribet was awarded the Fermat Prize in 1989.

Professor Ribet's groundbreaking application of algebraic geometry to number theoretical problems earned him the Brouwer Medal in 2017. His contribution has opened new avenues for exploration in number theory.
