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.
