Abel's irreducibility theorem

In mathematics, Abel's irreducibility theorem, a field theory result described in 1829 by Niels Henrik Abel, asserts that if ƒ(x) is a polynomial over a field F that shares a root with a polynomial g(x) that is irreducible over F, then every root of g(x) is a root of ƒ(x). Equivalently, if ƒ(x) shares at least one root with g(x) then ƒ is divisible evenly by g(x), meaning that ƒ(x) can be factored as g(x)h(x) with h(x) also having coefficients in F. Corollaries of the theorem include: * If ƒ(x) is irreducible, there is no lower-degree polynomial (other than the zero polynomial) that shares any root with it. For example, x2 − 2 is irreducible over the rational numbers and has as a root; hence there is no linear or constant polynomial over the rationals having as a root. Furthermore, there is no same-degree polynomial that shares any roots with ƒ(x), other than constant multiples of ƒ(x). * If ƒ(x) ≠ g(x) are two different irreducible monic polynomials, then they share no roots.

Abel formula

This is one of my all-time favorite differential equation videos!!! :D Here I'm actually using the Wronskian to actually find a nontrivial solution to a second-order differential equation. This is amazing because it brings the concept of the Wronskian back to life! And as they say, you won

Irreducibility and the Schoenemann-Eisenstein criterion | Famous Math Probs 20b | N J Wildberger

In the context of defining and computing the cyclotomic polynumbers (or polynomials), we consider irreducibility. Gauss's lemma connects irreducibility over the integers to irreducibility over the rational numbers. Then we describe T. Schoenemann's irreducibility criterion, which uses some

Irreducibility (Eisenstein's Irreducibility Criterion)

Given a polynomial with integer coefficients, we can determine whether it's irreducible over the rationals using Eisenstein's Irreducibility Criterion. Unlike some our other technique, this works for polynomials of high degree! The tradeoff is that it works over the rationals, but need not

Henri Darmon: Andrew Wiles' marvelous proof

Abstract: Pierre de Fermat famously claimed to have discovered “a truly marvelous proof” of his last theorem, which the margin in his copy of Diophantus' Arithmetica was too narrow to contain. Fermat's proof (if it ever existed!) is probably lost to posterity forever, while Andrew Wiles' p

Galois theory: Abel's theorem

This lecture is part of an online graduate course on Galois theory. We discuss Abel's theorem, that says a general quintic equation cannot be solved by radicals. We do this by showing that if a polynomial can be solved by radicals over a field of characteristic 0 then its roots lie in a s

Why you can't solve quintic equations (Galois theory approach) #SoME2

An entry to #SoME2. It is a famous theorem (called Abel-Ruffini theorem) that there is no quintic formula, or quintic equations are not solvable; but very likely you are not told the exact reason why. Here is how traditionally we knew that such a formula cannot exist, using Galois theory.
