## Abstract

Let $K$ be a number field, $S$ be the set of primes of $K$ above 2 and $T$ the subset of primes above 2 having inertial degree 1. Suppose that $T=∅$, and moreover, that for every solution $(λ,μ)$ to the $S$-unit equation

there is some $P∈T$ such that max${ν_{P}(λ),ν_{P}(μ)}≤4ν_{P}(2)$. Assuming two deep but standard conjectures from the Langlands programme, we prove the asymptotic Fermat's last theorem over $K$: there is some $B_{K}$ such that for all prime exponents $p>B_{K}$ the only solutions to $x_{p}+y_{p}+z_{p}=0$ with $x$, $y$, $z∈K$ satisfy $xyz=0$. We deduce that the asymptotic Fermat's last theorem holds for imaginary quadratic fields $Q(−d )$ with $−d≡$ 2, 3 (mod) 4) squarefree.
