A One-Line Proof of the Fundamental Theorem of Algebra with Newton's Method as a Consequence

Abstract

Many proofs of the fundamental theorem of algebra rely on the fact that the minimum of the modulus of a complex polynomial over the complex plane is attained at some complex number. The proof then follows by arguing the minimum value is zero. This can be done by proving that at any complex number that is not a zero of the polynomial we can exhibit a… (More)
