**Description**:

The text demonstrates the use of general concepts by applying theorems from various areas in the context of one problem -- solving the quintic. This book helps students at the advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate levels to develop connections between the algebra, geometry, and analysis that they know, and to better appreciate the totality of what they have learned.
