I think about this physics problem a lot ๐Ÿ›ซ โ„๏ธ

Fundamental theorem of algebra via basic topology:

Let p be a non-constant โ„‚ polynomial.

p is clopen on A, the preimage of its regular values B.

โ„‚ โˆ– B is finite, so B is connected. (fails for โ„!)

Thus p(A) = B.

p(โ„‚) contains โ„‚ โˆ– B, so p(โ„‚) = โ„‚, thus p has a root!

God grant me the confidence of this American guy that thinks if the return ferry from cat island is cancelled that someone on the island will "have to put him up for the night" ๐Ÿ˜‚

I saw this performance of Brandenburg 5 once, forgot about it, and searched fruitlessly for a while. Then it popped up on my recommendations again! youtube.com/watch?v=zWQKLsAobK

Surprisingly few textbooks discuss how to solve a polynomial equation with a solvable group. Found a ref to bookstore.ams.org/chel-268/ , which I have to request at a library since it's not online!

Sometimes when I got the blues and I'm feeling a bit down, all I need to do is go to YouTube and watch some Meerkat videos.

It usually works and I just can't stop smiling, then.
