Title:
From Galois Theory to Galois Representations

Abstract of Talk

We recall some facts from classical Galois theory, concentrating on
Galois' theorem which gives a criterion for a polynomial equation to
be solvable by radicals. At the end we mention the inverse Galois
problem and introduce Galois representations. This talk is meant to
be accessible to students.
