A history of Galois fields
This paper stresses a specific line of development of the notion of finite field, from Evariste Galois's 1830 ''Note sur la theorie des nombres,'' and Camille Jordan's 1870 Traite des substitutionsExpand
Algorithms for sorting by reversals or transpositions, with application to genome rearrangement : Algoritmos para problemas de ordenação por reversões ou transposições, com aplicações em rearranjo de genomas
Muitas variacoes do problema da ordenacao por rearranjo that envolvem esses rearranjos tem sido atacadas na literatura e, para a maior parte delas, os melhores algoritmos conhecidos sao aproximacoes ou heuristicas. Expand
An Analysis of Students' Difficulties in Learning Group Theory
ABSTRACT. Research in mathematics education and anecdotal data suggest that undergraduate students often find their introductory courses to group theory particularly difficult. Research in this area,Expand
Galois' Remarkable Subgroups
Abstract  Mathematics is a creative process, and unfortunately, that process is often hidden from students of the discipline. This is certainly the case in the area of mathematics commonly referredExpand
Dedekind's Treatment of Galois Theory in the Vorlesungen
We present a translation of §§160–166 of Dedekind’s Supplement XI to Dirichlet’s Vorlesungen uber Zahlentheorie, which contain an investigation of the subfields of C. In particular, Dedekind exploresExpand
Symmetric Polynomials in the Work of Newton and Lagrange
A modern paraphrase of Newton’s remark might be that it is valuable to have “several different ways of looking at things.” Although we will work with quadratic equations instead of the cubics NewtonExpand
Field Theory: From Equations to Axiomatization
7. THE ABSTRACT DEFINITION OF A FIELD. The developments we have been describing thus far lasted close to a century. They gave rise to important "concrete" theories-Galois theory, algebraic numberExpand
A"supernormal"partition statistic
We study a bijective map from integer partitions to the prime factorizations of integers that we call the “supernorm” of a partition, in which the multiplicities of the parts of partitions are mappedExpand

Galois and Group Theory
Every mathematician knows of EVARISTE GALOIS, and of his tragic career. But there are few who could give more than a vague description of his influence on mathematical thought. In order to understandExpand
