Fundamental Theorem of AlgebraAfter several drafts, herewith I present: The Fundamental Theorem of Algebra "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #2 20091216 12:30:19
Re: Fundamental Theorem of AlgebraHi MathsisFun; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #3 20091216 13:47:20
Re: Fundamental Theorem of AlgebraWow! That's excellent! I'll have to take a look around this site, it is really getting amazing. igloo myrtilles fourmis #5 20091217 05:58:10
Re: Fundamental Theorem of AlgebraGood page! Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #6 20091217 08:30:09
Re: Fundamental Theorem of AlgebraThanks guys!
Good point, will work on it "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #7 20091217 08:36:37

Re: Fundamental Theorem of AlgebraGreat job! For the multiplicity section I would suggest adding that if the multiplicity of a factor is even then the graph will be tangent with the xaxis at those roots and if odd the graph will cross the xaxis at those roots. #9 20091218 01:33:09
Re: Fundamental Theorem of Algebra"A "root" (or "zero") is where the function crosses the xaxis " #10 20091218 09:54:35
Re: Fundamental Theorem of AlgebraWhy not keep it simple and clear? You might aswell do it right. Also, thought about proving the following, or is it out of your scope? Last edited by Patrick (20091218 10:00:05) #11 20091218 10:49:50
