Beschreibung

This book describes classic and new results on solvability and unsolvability of equations in explicit form, presenting the author's complete exposition of topological Galois theory, plus basics of the Picard-Vessiot theory and a great deal more.

This book provides a detailed and largely self-contained description of various classical and new results on solvability and unsolvability of equations in explicit form. In particular, it offers a complete exposition of the relatively new area of topological Galois theory, initiated by the author. Applications of Galois theory to solvability of algebraic equations by radicals, basics of PicardVessiot theory, and Liouville's results on the class of functions representable by quadratures are also discussed.

A unique feature of this book is that recent results are presented in the same elementary manner as classical Galois theory, which will make the book useful and interesting to readers with varied backgrounds in mathematics, from undergraduate students to researchers.

In this English-language edition, extra material has been added (Appendices AD), the last two of which were written jointly with Yura Burda.



The largest collection of unsolvability results

Classical Galois theory and Liouville's explicit integration theory are explained from scratch

A gentle introduction to the cutting edge of research
