On April 6, 1829, Norwegian mathematician Niels Henrik Abel passed away. Abel is well known in mathematics for proving the impossibility of solving the quintic equation by radicals. In parallel to Évariste Galois – who also died very young – , he laid the foundations of group theory. “The mathematicians have been very much absorbed with finding the general solution of algebraic equations, and several of them have tried to prove the…Read more
