Galois Theory

Master's level | 7.5 credits | Course code: MMA310

The course is not given as a stand-alone course this academic year, but can be included in the program/course package. For information contact the department.

About the Course

In this course you will study polynomial equations over fields, using group theory. Among other things, we will show that there is no general formula with root expressions for the solutions of polynomial equations of degree five. We do this by classifying algebraic extension fields, using the symmetric groups of the fields. As a byproduct, we will determine which of the regular polygons can be constructed with compass and ruler.
