The goal of this thesis is to trace the development in mathematical theory that led to the proof of the insolvability of the quintic. That is, there does not exist a general formula in radicals for equations of the form [not reproducible-see full...

This work deals with the construction of zero mean curvature surfaces in the three dimensional anti de-Sitter space. The method that was used was to look for examples that can be described using polynomial equations. More precisely, we are looking...

American students have been underperforming on international standardized tests for over thirty years. These concerns have been documented in publications (i.e. A Nation at Risk). The United States federal government has also written ―No Child...
Abstract algebra is, at its core, the study of algebraic structures. As the name implies, these structures can be studied in the abstract. Therefore universal properties can be examined and proven generally, as opposed to being studied number...
