Galois Theory - 2nd edition

Galois Theory (ISBN10: 0412345501; ISBN13: 9780412345500)
ISBN13: 978-0412345500
ISBN10: 0412345501

This edition has also been released as:
ISBN13: 978-0412345401
ISBN10: 0412345404

Summary: Galois Theory is a showpiece of mathematical unification and "technology transfer." Abstract algebraic techniques, such as group theory and field theory, answer important questions in geometry and the theory of equations. Applications include:
  • the impossibility of trisecting the angle
  • duplicating the cube
  • squaring the circle
  • solving equations of the fifth degree >
    the possibility of constructing regular polygons with 17, 257, or 65537 sides
    This revised edition of a popular text includes an introductory overview, a chapter on the calculation of Galois groups, further clarification of proofs, extra motivating examples, and modified exercises.
    • Provides a rigorous treatment, motivated by discussion and examples
    • Contains historical materials, including a description of the turbulent life of Evariste Galois
    • Includes photographs of historical documents
    • Supplies more than 200 exercises
