Title: I'll prove the Fundamental Theorem of Algebra

Speaker: Sam Kim Affiliation: Department of Pure Math, University of Waterloo Room: MC 5501

Abstract:

Gauss proved that complex polynomials always admit a root. I'll explain how he came to that conclusion and present a proof that rigorizes his argument in a nice way. You will only need to know a little vector calculus and the intermediate value theorem.
