Starting Galois Theory
October 4, 2011 Leave a comment
Even though there is so much more cool stuff to do in linear algebra, people have been waiting patiently to see some Galois Theory. Now that we have some of the ideas of linear algebra, we are ready to grab the low-hanging fruit in field theory, which will lead us into Galois Theory. Tomorrow we’ll start talking about compass-and-straightedge constructions.
