This is an English translation of Anders Wiman's classical paper"\"{U}ber die Anwendung der Tschirnhausen Transformation auf die Reduktion algebraischer Gleichungen"from 1927. The original work first appeared in the 1927 extraordinary edition of Nova Acta Regiae Societatis Scientiarum Upsaliensis. In this paper, Wiman gives an argument that the general polynomial of degree nine can be solved using one algebraic function of four variables and accessory irrationalities of degree at most five… Expand

Upper Bounds on Resolvent Degree and Its Growth Rate
For each n, let RD(n) denote the minimum d for which there exists a formula for the general polynomial of degree n in algebraic functions of at most d variables. In 1945, Segre called for a betterExpand
