TITLE:

Solving Quintic Equations (Part 2)

ABSTRACT:
In the series of talks we are aiming to demonstrate how one can
solve a given Quintic Equation using Theta Series.
In the first talk we covered a brief history of solution of
polynomials, reduction of the problem by Tschirnhaus transformations
and defining Theta functions.
In the second talk we show how to to solve the general quintic
using Theta functions.
