Omar Leon Sanchez, Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo

Abstract:

One of the most interesting applications of (algebraic) Galois theory, and perhaps why it all started, is that it translates the problem of solving polynomials by radicals to group-theoretic questions (in which we sometimes have an easier way to find an answer, e.g. finite groups).
