About this Textbook

This book is an introduction to Galois theory along the lines of Galois' "Memoir on the Conditions for Solvability of Equations by Radicals". Some antecedents of Galois theory in the works of Gauss, Lagrange, Vandemonde, Newton, and even the ancient Babylonians, are explained in order to put Galois' main ideas in their historical setting. The modern formulation of the theory is also explained. The book contains many exercises - with answers - and an English translation of Galois' memoir.
