# Galois Theory

Évariste Galois (Bourg-la-Reine, 1811), before his premature death at 20, he was able to determine a necessary and sufficient condition for a polynomial to be solvable by radicals, thereby solving a 350 years-standing problem. His work laid the foundations for Galois theory and group theory, two major branches of abstract algebra, and the subfield of Galois connections.

Évariste Galois, French mathematician. He determined necessary and sufficient condition for a polynomial to be solvable by radicals, thereby solving a long-standing problem. His work laid the foundations for Galois theory and group theory. He was the first to use the word "group" as a technical term in mathematics to represent a group of permutations. A radical Republican during the reign of Louis Philippe. He died from wounds suffered in a duel at the age of 20
