Algebra Seminar: Solving the Quartic: An Algebraic Method

2005-04-11

1:10pm; Neill Hall, Room 106W

Sherod Eubanks

Abstract: This seminar will focus on an algebraic technique for determining the roots of the quartic equation with real coefficients, i.e. solving for x where ax^4 + bx^3 + cx^2 + dx + e = 0 where x is in C, and a, b, etc, are in R.
