Number Theory Seminar

DATE: Tuesday, October 25 (2011), at 1:55pm  
SPEAKERS: Frank Patane and Ali Uncu
TITLE: Solving Quintic Equations (Part 2)

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.
