Title: Untangling the Eternal Golden Braid
Speaker: Jeff Norton
1:30 PM-2:20PM, MSC 459
We will discuss a topological proof of the general insolubility of the quintic by radicals, originally by Arnold, using basic covering space theory. We will relate the content of the proof to the other three topics in the title in fun and surprising ways.
