Sussex Branch - √Čvariste Galois and the theory of equations

24 September 2015

Venue: BHASVIC, 205 Dyke Road, Hove BN3 6EG

Time: 4.30 pm

Speaker: Peter M Neumann, the current President of the MA and Emeritus Fellow Queens College Oxford

Subject: Évariste Galois and the theory of equations

Abstract:  Évariste Galois died aged 20 in 1832, shot in a mysterious early morning duel in Paris.  His ideas, after they were published fourteen years later, changed the direction of algebra and have had a huge influence on mathematics.  In this session I propose to sketch his short and turbulent life, and explain something of his mathematical insights.
