|Hello, I'm Owliver and welcome to our little corner of the Internet. I'm the resident pet owl and I'll be your guide.
Here, you will find a module in the form of papers written by my owner on a very interesting subject, namely solving solvable equations in radicals.
|They are written in a very accessible manner, so only a reasonable amount of background mathematical knowledge is needed. So sit back, read, and enjoy.|
