In the case of irreducible quintics, the Galois group is a subgroup of the symmetric group S 5 of all permutations of a five element set, which is solvable if and only if it is a subgroup of the group F 5 , of order 20 , generated by the cyclic permutations 1 2 3 4 5 and 1 2 4 3.
If the quintic is solvable, one of the solutions may be represented by an algebraic expression involving a fifth root and at most two square roots, generally nested. The other solutions may then be obtained either by changing the fifth root or by multiplying all the occurrences of the fifth root by the same power of a primitive 5th root of unity. All four primitive fifth roots of unity may be obtained by changing the signs of the square roots appropriately, namely:.
It follows that one may need four different square roots for writing all the roots of a solvable quintic. Even for the first root that involves at most two square roots, the expression of the solutions in terms of radicals is usually highly complicated. These p -th roots were introduced by Joseph-Louis Lagrange , and their products by p are commonly called Lagrange resolvents. However these p -th roots may not be computed independently this would provide p p —1 roots instead of p. Thus a correct solution needs to express all these p -roots in term of one of them. Galois theory shows that this is always theoretically possible, even if the resulting formula may be too large to be of any use.
It is possible that some of the roots of Q are rational as in the first example of this section or some are zero. In these cases, the formula for the roots is much simpler, as for the solvable de Moivre quintic. This can be easily generalized to construct a solvable septic and other odd degrees, not necessarily prime.
Lectures on the icosahedron and the solution of equations of the fifth degree.
There are infinitely many solvable quintics in Bring-Jerrard form which have been parameterized in a preceding section. Analogously to cubic equations , there are solvable quintics which have five real roots all of whose solutions in radicals involve roots of complex numbers.
This is casus irreducibilis for the quintic, which is discussed in Dummit. In Charles Hermite showed that the Bring radical could be characterized in terms of the Jacobi theta functions and their associated elliptic modular functions , using an approach similar to the more familiar approach of solving cubic equations by means of trigonometric functions. At around the same time, Leopold Kronecker , using group theory , developed a simpler way of deriving Hermite's result, as had Francesco Brioschi.
Lectures on the Icosahedron and the Solution of the Fifth Degree by Felix Klein
Later, Felix Klein came up with a method that relates the symmetries of the icosahedron , Galois theory , and the elliptic modular functions that are featured in Hermite's solution, giving an explanation for why they should appear at all, and developed his own solution in terms of generalized hypergeometric functions. A Tschirnhaus transformation , which may be computed by solving a quartic equation , reduces the general quintic equation of the form.
