Can someone please give the original paper by Prof. Wiles of the proof of Fermat's Last Theorem? I cannot find it.

Look at the references of the wikipedia page you cited. – Umberto P. Apr 1 '14 at 20:08
Good luck understanding the first few sentences. :D – Enjoys Math Apr 1 '14 at 20:09
Conjecture: Any person unable to find Wiles' proof will be unable to understand it. – Charles Apr 1 '14 at 20:33
@Charles That's my problem. What's yours? – x.y.z... Apr 1 '14 at 20:41
@x.y.z... re. Charles. On this site you will come across (rarely. thank God) those who think that a question is far beneath them. Yet, instead of ignoring said questions such individuals are inclined to fire off a derogatory comment. Thankfully, most here are far better behaved. – Peter Aug 14 '15 at 18:49
