### Galois Groups

Okay, my turn to ask for help....

Can someone explain how you would go about computing the Galois Group for
x^4 - 16

I really am not quite understanding the process...

The greatest challenge to any thinker is stating the problem in a way that will allow a solution.

atulvek,
Here is a link to Galois theory.

It is no good to try to stop knowledge from going forward. Ignorance is never better than knowledge - Enrico Fermi.

Nothing is better than reading and gaining more and more knowledge - Stephen William Hawking.

### Re: Galois Groups

You have to learn a whole lot of things before trying to tackle Galois Theory.  Start with groups and work your way up to rings and fields.  But this is abstract algebra, it is nothing easy.

"In the real world, this would be a problem.  But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist.  So we'll go ahead and do that now..."

Do you like Bertrand Russell too? I like his paradox very much! hehe...
