Four squares theorem

Four Squares Theorem -- every natural number is the sum of four integer squares -- simply asserts that x² + y² + z² + w² = n is solvable for all n. But the attempt to solve these equations requires rather powerful tools from elsewhere in mathematics to shed light on the the structure of the problem.
